Making information available is a permanent challenge for cities concerned to their social, urban and local planning and development, focused on life quality of their citizens and on the effectiveness of public management. The objective is to describe the information and information systems project from the planning of a digital city carried out in Vinhedo-SP, Brazil. The research methodology was emphasized by a case study which turned to be a research-action, comprising the municipal administration and its local units. The results achieved describe phases, sub-phases, approval points and resulting products. The contributions have to do with the practical feasibility of the project. The conclusion reiterates the importance of the project, collectively implemented and accepted, as a tool to help the management of cities, in the implementation of strategic digital city projects, in the decisions of public administration managers, and in the quality of life of their citizens.
