OPEN CHALLENGES

We are shifting our focus to the problems that need to be solved rather than the products the City needs to buy.

Through our partnership with Citymart, in lieu of issuing requests for proposals, we issued “open challenges,” which focus on the problem rather than the end-product. This helped the City receive a diverse set of proven and innovative solutions.

UP & OUT: ACTIVE CITY DATA CHALLENGE

 

In this Request for Solution (RFS) the City is looking for innovative ways to capture, measure and analyze the number of people using community facilities, such as bike lanes, sidewalks, parks, libraries, beaches, and community centers in order to understand the value of public space today and inform the City’s continued efforts to make Long Beach a more walkable, bikeable, transit-oriented city.
