Broadband Capacity in Region 9 Assessment Available

Dearborn County Community Leaders:

Some of you are aware of the recent study underwritten by the EcO15 Initiative to assess Region 9's broadband capacity relative to the educational and community needs within each county of the region. This study and the design phases are now complete thanks to the help provided by many of you in the initial community meeting sessions held in the earlier part of this year by Mr. Jim Goldman at our Dearborn County Chamber of Commerce Office. The results of Jim's findings while conducting an IT Infrastructure Needs Assessment and his recommendations for broadband development within our region will be the focus of a 90 minute session to be presented on April 9, 2010 at the Region 9 Workforce Board Meeting to be convened at Ivy Tech Community College at the Riverfront Campus, 50 Walnut Street in Lawrenceburg. There will also be time included for additional community input and general Q & A.

You plus any others who are interested in hearing Mr. Goldman's report findings and recommendations to bring "true" high-speed broadband connectivity to Southeastern Indiana, are cordially invited to do so on April 9th. While the Region 9 Workforce Board will conduct their need business earlier in the morning.....they expect that at 10:00 am Mr. Goldman will be scheduled to begin his presentation in the Business Conference Center (4th floor) at the ITCC Riverfront Campus in Downtown Lawrenceburg. A copy of the presentation agenda is available.

If you and/or any of your associates are interested in attending....I ASK YOU TO PLEASE CALL ANDREA AT THE DEARBORN COMMUNITY FOUNDATION OFFICE TO RSVP YOUR INTENT TO ATTEND BY WEDNESDAY, APRIL 6TH. The Foundation Office Number is (812) 539-4115.

Attached to this email is a preliminary agenda for the the Region 9 Workforce Board Meeting....please use this as a reminder of this important presentation.

Finally, please accept a sincere "Thank you" from your Dearborn County Eco15 Coordinator for your involvement and interest in the development of this IT Infrastructure Plan. Your continued interest and support will spirit the future development and design of a "true" high-speed broadband plan that will promote human and economic development throughout the region.

Thank you,
