News Details - Broadband Forum in Groton March 14
The County Legislature’s Special Committee on Broadband hosts another in its series of Community Engagement Forums Wednesday, March 14 in Groton, as the committee asks residents to assist in its effort to determine how high-speed internet access can be achieved for all county residents.
The forum will take place at the Groton Town Hall, located at 101 Conger Boulevard, beginning at 7:00 p.m. Residents will have the opportunity to learn more about the work of the Broadband Committee, talk about their specific broadband Internet access needs, and share their ideas on how expanded high-speed Internet access can benefit the community.
The Committee, charged with advising the Legislature on “how to best promote broadband technology countywide, to address the needs of unserved and underserved residents, foster public-private innovation, enhance existing capabilities, and support good governance,” has been working on the issue for over a year, and handed up its initial recommendations to the Legislature in January.
Copies of the Committee’s report will be available at the meeting, and may be reviewed online at the Legislature’s web site at
The Community Engagement Forums are coordinated by the Broadband Committee’s Education, Awareness, and Marketing Subcommittee. To date, the Committee has held sessions in Lansing and Danby. Three more forums are scheduled in other parts of the county—on Wednesday, March 28 at the Caroline Town Hall; Thursday, April 19 at the Ulysses Town Hall (focus: Ulysses/Enfield); and Wednesday, May 9 at the Newfield Town Hall (focus: Enfield/Newfield).
While each forum is held in a specific region of the county, attendance is not limited to citizens of that area, and residents from throughout the county are invited and encouraged to attend any session that is convenient.
