Vision will guide the introduction of technological solutions that interact and complement each other
Southern Nevada has announced a unified vision to ensure continued efforts between local entities and other public sector agencies with the aim of building a smarter and more connected community.
The agreement between all six Southern Nevada jurisdictions, coordinated by the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada, will guide the implementation of smart technologies regionally to ensure they seamlessly interact and complement each other, regardless of jurisdictional boundaries.
The Southern Nevada Smart Community Vision helps provide a blueprint for continued coordination and cooperation among the RTC, the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDoT), local entities, and other public-sector agencies like the Las Vegas Valley Water District as they work with various private-industry companies to leverage advanced technology.
The jurisdictions that adopted the vision are Boulder City, Clark County, Henderson, Las Vegas, Mesquite and North Las Vegas.
The vision incorporates the concepts of safety, inclusivity, user-friendliness and resource efficiency to accomplish three goals:
The region came together to adopt the vision to:
The RTC is the transit authority, transportation planning organisation, regional traffic management agency and administrator of Southern Nevada Strong, the regional planning effort for the Las Vegas valley.
The commission said it convened the jurisdictions to create this plan given its role as Southern Nevada’s transit, traffic management and transportation planning agency, as well as serving as the administrator of Southern Nevada Strong, a regional plan to build complete communities.
The RTC’s vision is to provide a safe, convenient and effective regional transportation system that enhances mobility and air quality for citizens and visitors. It encourages residents and visitors to use a variety of transportation choices to help reduce traffic congestion, clean the air and improve the quality of life in Southern Nevada.
