Last week, the Franconia Township Communications Committee on Broadband hosted a community meeting on broadband. By meeting I mean a BBQ in a gorgeous setting with people hanging around if you had any questions. There were dozens of people there. I was very impressed.
There were people from the Committee, folks from CTC and others.
They also had info on wind gardens. Apparently wind gardens were an issue in the area. A group of local citizens got involved. I don’t know the details but rumor has it when Franconia needed a group to push forward the broadband initiative, these guys fit the bill! I add that because I think it’s good advice for other communities – need help? Find helpers with a track record.
Also I want to share the PowerPoint the showed at the event, the info packet and survey results from a broadband survey done in Chisago County. These are good models for other communities and strong building blocks in Franconia.
