Current Projects

LC Begins ConnectME Planning Project

We have been authorized to spend $6825 on Phase I, and up to $31,850 in Phase II, contingent ConnectME’s acceptance of the Phase I final report and demonstration of readiness for Phase II. We’ve just signed a contract with Axiom to provide the broadband planning and technical support, and hope to have our first “regional” meeting with all the towns represented in the next couple of weeks.

Broadband access and adoption is a critical strategy for improving overall quality of life in rural communities by:

  • Creating more opportunities for people to work where they live,
  • Providing young people with expanded educational and employment opportunities,
  • Improving access to adult education, healthcare and telehealth ,
  • Supporting improved municipal and emergency services,
  • Increasing the quality of tourism experiences and related business benefits, and 
  • Attracting young families to live and work in the area.
