Locality and identity associated with it retain their sociality and significance in the modern world. The “smart city” concept has institutionalized the transition to the information type society. Hence, the problem is to define the role of identity in the city’s transition to the state of intelligence. Such concern is explained by the possibility to construct the urban identity and social space of the city as elements of intangible resources of development. The purpose of this article is to determine the relationship between the urban identity of citizens, their social activity and the use of smart city technologies. Hypotheses: the urban identity of citizens has an impact on the social activity of the citizen; citizens with a high level of urban identity use smart technologies to realize their social activity. The survey of 877 residents of Tyumen showed that the socially active part of the citizens with a high index of urban identity uses smart technologies to participate in the management of the city. The article presents a theoretical understanding of the urban identity of citizens. It analyzes the sociological study of the connection between urban identity and the implementation of the “smart city” concept.
