Sidewalk Labs’ Master Innovation and Development Plan, released in June, is “not sufficiently specific” about its digital innovation proposals and how individuals and businesses can participate in it, according to preliminary commentary released by the Digital Strategy Advisory Panel on Tuesday. The panel recommends that data governance mechanisms for the neighbourhood be developed by Waterfront Toronto along with all three levels of government. It also calls the plan’s value-sharing proposals “insufficient,” and that it doesn’t recognize the full value of the public’s contribution; the company proposed a 10 per cent profit-sharing of technology “first-deployed” in the area over a 10-year period.
