Community Broadband Initiative - Bringing The Broadband Discussion To Light - 6/13 - Kalispell

On Wednesday, June 13th from 8:00 am to 2:30 pm, Montana West Economic Development and the Northwest Montana Association of Realtors/MLS will be hosting the Community Broadband Initiative at FVCC in the Arts & Technology Building, Room 139.

Communities across the country are leveraging public and private investment in broadband infrastructure to insure they stay on the cutting edge of this vital technology. Join MWED and NMAR/MLS in this community discussion to:

Learn industry vocabulary

View maps of current infrastructure

See current providers build-out plans

Hear about upgrades to health, education and community facility's internet access

Identify business models and resources other cities are using for upgrades

Strategize with others for creative solutions for your area

This important event will organize community conversations about options to address the well-documented gap in crucial infrastructure for new technology and broadband access as demonstrated in the Flathead County's 2017 Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) community access process.

The workshop will be designed to educate key players and the community at large about new public and private initiative and finance tools available throughout the country to maximize opportunity in the Valley. Break-out sessions and discussion will be facilitated with follow-up measures to create a foundation for individual communities to organize and move forward. Lunch will be provided, please RSVP.
