Regional Broadband Strategic Plan
As part of the Colorado Department of Local Affairs broadband planning efforts, the Upper Arkansas Area Council of Governments sought to create a regional broadband strategic plan.
Fiber Community staff (working as OHIvey and Mid-State Consultants) worked with regional stakeholders to develop a strategic plan with short-, mid-, and long-term goals. Regional stakeholders understood that broadband extends beyond the reach of any geographic boundary but were also concerned that the regional broadband not lose touch with the fact that each of COG’s counties have unique needs.
The resulting study provides a regional road-map and addresses the individual needs of each of the member counties. The individual counties and communities have gone on to implement many of the projects recommended in the regional strategic plan.View website
