Columbus Ohio officially winner of DOT Smart City Challenge and $140 million in innovation grants

With the Columbus Dispatch (and many possible runner-up cities) reporting two days ago that Columbus was the winner of the Smart City Challenge, official word was silent until this afternoon.
Today in Columbus, U.S. Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx officially recognized and announced—to a full house at the Douglas Community Center in the neighbor of Linden—that the city is indeed the winner and will reap the benefits of victory; a $50 million grant plus $90 million in local matching contributions.
