October 11th, 2023

COQUITLAMUrbanLogiq is teaming up with the City of Coquitlam to launch a 2-year pilot project designed to directly impact the everyday lives of Coquitlam residents. Facilitated by Project Greenlight, a procurement platform that fast-tracks civic innovations, this collaboration promises not only smarter governance but also tangible improvements in road safety, economic vibrancy, and recreational enjoyment.

“We are incredibly excited about partnering with the City of Coquitlam. Our core mission at UrbanLogiq has always been to unlock the potential of cities through data-driven insights. This collaboration allows us to apply our advanced analytics to create real-world benefits. By teaming up with a forward-thinking city like Coquitlam, we’re not just envisioning a better future; we’re actively building it,” Mark Masongsong, CEO and Co-founder, UrbanLogiq.

Safer Streets

Imagine knowing that your city is actively using state-of-the-art data analytics to make your daily commute safer. The City of Coquitlam’s public works adoption of the UrbanLogiq Crash Analysis Tool will enable staff to leverage five years of detailed crash data to identify hazardous locations and conditions—enabling the city to proactively address these hotspots. Whether it’s a problematic intersection or a stretch of road that’s particularly dangerous, this initiative aims to pinpoint and mitigate risks, ensuring safer streets.

Boosting Local Businesses

As the world rebounds from economic challenges, local policymakers will have access to insights into the health of the commercial districts. By merging up-to-date census data with local business licensing information, the city aims to assess and enhance the vitality of retail and commercial areas. Additionally, powered through the UrbanLogiq platform staff can evaluate the economic impact of large events by analyzing spending patterns, offering valuable insights for business strategies.

“The City of Coquitlam’s recently approved Economic Development Strategy lists several key actions to attract, grow and support our local business community. We look forward to partnering with UrbanLogiq to consolidate, visualize and analyze local data in order to encourage new investment and build sustainable economic clusters,” Eric Kalnins, Acting Manager Economic Development, City of Coquitlam.

More Enjoyable Public Spaces

The Park and Site Visitation Analysis Tool in the UrbanLogiq platform will utilize data to measure the volume of visitors, enabling better resource management and assisting with planning.
This means well-maintained parks and public spaces, optimized for the enjoyment of Coquitlam residents.

The Bottom Line

“This comprehensive approach highlights the transformative power of strategic alliances. As cities like Coquitlam set the benchmark, it offers a vivid blueprint for other cities to holistically enhance economic vibrancy and well-being,” John McPherson at the Vancouver Economic Commission.
