Humboldt Park Takes Lead Role on Tech

Leaders in Humboldt Park are serious about bringing a digital culture to their community.

One of five designated "Smart Communities" in Chicago – neighborhoods that just yesterday were awarded a $7 million federal grant for broadband adoption – Humboldt Park put together the video below to pitch for another special project, the Google Fiber initiative that will bring ultra-fast internet speeds to one or more U.S. communities.

Both projects are being done in collaboration with the City of Chicago Department of Innovation and Technology. Learn more about the Humboldt Park tech culture here. And read about Chicago's Google Fiber application here.
