Places First in Category, Recognized for Innovation and Planning
Chesterfield County once again has been named to the top of a national list for its innovative use of technology.
Chesterfield placed first on the Digital Counties Survey in the 250,000-499,999 population category for the third time in the past six years. The recognitions were announced today by the Center for Digital Government and the National Association of Counties. This year, the county was recognized for creating strategic planning documents such as Blueprint Chesterfield and the Information Technology Investment Model, as well as for its transparency and open government efforts, use of Salesforce for economic development and the Chesterfield County Public Library website.
“We’re proud to be named for the third time to the top of the Digital Counties Survey listing,” said Barry Condrey, the county’s chief information officer. “Our Board of Supervisors continues to recognize the value of innovation, technology for innovation, and the value of investing in these efforts to improve public services.”
Chesterfield County has been named among the top 10 counties nationwide five times in the past six years.
“Our employees have worked hard to earn this recognition for the county as a pioneer in applying technology to citizen information and services,” said County Administrator James J.L. Stegmaier. “This recognition speaks to the Board of Supervisors’ commitment to an open and accessible government that engages and serves citizens in intelligent and innovative ways.”
