Better Cities Today™ Opportunities Assessment for Pismo Beach

In March 2018, ENGIE, an international energy services provider, partnered with Nutter Consulting to deploy their inaugural Better Cities Today™ program in the City of Pismo Beach.  With the guiding framework of ENGIE’s Unlock Process™, we created actionable strategies to uncover priorities and opportunities for technology and data projects that Pismo Beach can use to advance existing City goals and improve services to the community.  From IoT-connected digital signage that boosts pedestrian accessibility and traffic flow during peak congestion times, to smart parking meters that leverage dynamic pricing models to increase revenue and decrease congestion, the deliverable of the Unlock Process™ has identified key priorities for the City of Pismo Beach to propel their goal of becoming a Better City Today™.


LookAhead SF Sea Level Rise Visualization Virtual Reality App

Working with Climate Access, the LookAhead SF program utilized virtual reality technology to provide a more immersive window into sea level rise impacts and solutions. Through the use of a mobile app, the project focused on three unique locations to reach stakeholders to engage in community risk reduction efforts, prompt users to take action and encourage involvement in local planning efforts.  Nutter Consulting was hired as the lead outreach and education consultant for LookAhead SF.  Nutter Consulting developed and implemented the Outreach and Communications Plan. Throughout the duration of the project, we coordinated with key city government officials in San Francisco and San Mateo, developed a network of local project partners, and conducted community education.
