Washington State University has joined with six private and public partners on a formal agreement to develop Spokane’s University District into a smart city living laboratory.
“We’re excited to be part of this group that is leading smart city innovations for healthier people, safer neighborhoods, smarter infrastructure and a more sustainable environment,” said Kim Zentz, director of WSU’s Engineering and Technology Management program, who is leading the project.
The group, which also includes Avista, the City of Spokane, Itron, McKinstry and the University District Development Association, has signed a memorandum of understanding. The partners will align efforts to create a living laboratory for the design of cities of the future in the 770-acre University District, which is located north of I-90 and east of Division Street adjacent to Spokane’s downtown core.
