As part of its inaugural Golden Hub of Innovation Awards, the Association of California Cities – Orange County sought to provide more than just hardware for the mantel. Indeed, the approximately 50 ideas and innovations nominated for a Golden Hub Award all deserved to be shared across the County and beyond our borders.
That’s why we are proud to introduce the inaugural Compendium of Innovation – a complete catalogue of the most innovative strategies and governance models, strategies and tactics that exist right here in Orange County.2012 Compendium of Ideas
Cities, local governments, industry and non-profits are invited to use this as a resource, to learn new ideas and determine if they’re worth implementing in your jurisdiction or organization. Each year, this will be added to and improved, making it the go-to source of ideas for local government solutions.
