Chris Mitchell from the Institute for Local Self Reliance has long been an advocate and supporter of community-owner and/or operative broadband networks. Recently he and his colleague Lisa Gonzalez wrote a policy brief on the state of broadband in rural Minnesota – featuring local communities who have pursued public or public-private partnership for a community broadband network. Communities include Lac qui Parle County, Scott County, Windom, Sibley County, Monticello, Chaska and Buffalo. (Download the report here: http://tinyurl.com/qbhqwv3.)

Chris will talk about the successes and barriers that the communities have experienced – giving participants a chance to learn from their neighbors.
