Welcome to Our Smart Cities
The vision of SmartCity is one founded on the belief that digital divide and educational disparity could be adequately addressed by innovative housing and community development solutions. Thriving communities will be those where healthful living is synonymous with excellent educational and recreational opportunities. Information & Communications Technology (ICT) and internet connectivity constitute the baseline for good educational opportunity in today’s world, as is a well-trained classroom teacher. In addition to eradication of housing shortages and unhealthful living conditions, a SmartCity will make provisions for Community/Technology Centre and Educational Facilities. These facilities will provide for ICT amenities and feature the best educational and recreational opportunity in the region where it is cited. It is intended that a SmartCity will provide the best community in which to live and raise children.
The mission of the SmartCity Developers is to satisfy this overwhelming need that exists in the various regions of the country through the provision of SmartCity solutions to areas of the population where the need is greatest. Three of such community development projects are proposed for the metro areas of major cities in Nigeria, beginning with SmartCity Amansea, in Awka Capital Territory, Anambra State.
Each SmartCity neighborhood is planned to have well paved roads with underground drainage systems, potable water treatment and reticulation, a community center with fitness equipments and media room, 24/7 security and public safety facilities, including CCTV, intercoms, fire rescue and neighborhood policing to support a modern lifestyle in a well landscaped, gated community. SmartCity also offers homes outfitted with trademark energy-saving appliances, as AIM has made energy efficiency a chief priority in development and building plans. In addition to connection to the national power grid, there will be back-up generators and solar systems to offer the community a 24 hour power supply.
The subdivision will have 24/7 electrical power, ICT, water/wastewater systems, and public safety infrastructure and buildings will be internet-ready and have inter-connectivity.
The Community/Technology Center programs will be structured to not only expose residents to ICT benefits, but also to steer children to technology education and careers. By use of satellite and broadband technology, periodic local and global cultural exchange live programs can be held in a SmartCity. WiFi and WiMAX technologies will be deployed as necessary.
