Two Arizona Municipalities among Top Digital Cities in the Nation

The Center for Digital Government has ranked the town of Marana and the city of Avondale as two of the top cities in the country in its 2012 Digital Cities Survey. The award recognizes cities for their commitment to and innovations in digital government.

The survey focused on results achieved by cities, via the use of technology, in operating efficiencies and realizing strategic objectives despite current fiscal constraints. The highest-ranking cities in the survey showed great strides in consolidating, enabling shared services, government transparency and communications interoperability

Marana ranked as the first place winner in the 30,000 - 74,999 population category. This is the first time that the town has entered into the survey. Avondale received 8th place honors in the 75,000 - 124,999 population category. Avondale has now won the award for two consecutive years, earning recognition as a community that applies technology well in everything from operations to community engagement.

Top ten-ranked cities will be honored at a special awards ceremony concurrent with the National League of Cities annual conference in Boston on November 30th. To learn more about the Center for Digital Government and view a full list of winners, click here.
