Urban SDK Partners with Sun Prairie

The City of Sun Prairie, Wisconsin has tabbed Urban SDK to help facilitate smart growth within the region.

While other larger cities around Wisconsin have seen some drop-off in population, the state's capital of Madison and its surrounding suburbs have shows a good deal of growth. This is certainly the case with Sun Prairie, which has experienced the state's 2nd largest population gain among cities having a population greater than 30,000.

"When we first spoke, officials at the City mentioned their growth and a need to managing requests for service using their current staff," said Urban SDK AVP of Revenue Micah Dickman. "We saw an immediate need to help officials across Public Works, Law Enforcement, and even the School District get a better handle on activities on their roadways."

Sun Prairie will use Urban SDK to view speeds on all their local roadways and quickly respond to concerned citizens.

"Our customers tend to see that upwards of 80-85% of complaints are invalid," said Dickman. "So in a place like Sun Prairie, we can help the team quickly evaluate which roads are truly an issue, without depleting the limited hours of their team."

Urban SDK's revolutionary traffic calming software enables officials to see roadway speeds and volumes for all local roads. This on-demand access provides an added layer of visibility that let's officials quickly respond to citizens while also determining roads that need calming devices or additional infrastructure.
