When cities consider new ways of delivering services, support from citizens is essential for success. The best policies would have difficulty being implemented as uninformed and disengaged citizens are not able to support, and may even actively oppose them. For citizens to get involved early in the design of smart city projects, public education and access to a wide variety of open data and planning information might be key.
