Most Digital Cities in US for 2006

The most technology-advanced cities in United States have been named by the Center for Digital Government based on its 2006 Digital Cities Survey. The sixth annual study examines how city governments are utilizing digital technologies to better serve their citizens and streamline operations.

“We were so happy to see the fantastic improvements and innovations made by cities from coast to coast,” said Cathilea Robinett, executive director for the Center for Digital Government. “Each year, while conducting the Digital Cities Survey and other popular survey programs, we continually see America’s state and local governments raising the bar and expanding their use of technology to serve citizens. We can’t help but be inspired and impressed by the amazing strides made by this year’s participating cities.”

The study of previous Surveys reveals a small number of cities that are consistently at the top. Corpus Christi, TX has been in the top 10 since 2003 as has Madison, WI who each took top honors in their categories. In cities between 125.000 and 250.000 in population Alexandria, VA shares first place with Madison, WI after holding forth place last year. Other top performers from the past include Roanoke who placed first in all but one year, Ogden, UT who held first in 2004 and Delray Beach, FL who took first place last year in their first year in the survey.
