The Beta District in International Spotlight
By Bruce Edwards
The Beta District was highlighted at the International City/County Management Association’s (ICMA) 2021 conference in Portland, Ore. The District covers an expansive area in the Columbus, Ohio region, which is widely recognized as one of the preeminent and most desirable cities for technology leaders and workers. It is an innovation region where private sector, government and academia work together in an open playground to safely test and deploy technology in real-world scenarios.
It is a unique environment made possible by the true collaboration of business, academia, industry and government partners, including the cities of Dublin and Marysville and Union County.
