The Economic Development Board is developing the Sonoma County Broadband Strategic Plan. High speed, affordable, and accessible broadband infrastructure is a critical component to equip our communities for the digital economy, especially for communities outside major metropolitan areas. The strategic plan will begin to develop the framework for community and economic development programs to bridge the digital divide, support job growth, tax base growth, and quality of life for our residents.

We are seeking your assistance on the plan’s development. Our project consultant, Magellan Advisors, has asked that we set up 10-20 member focus groups in each of the five supervisorial districts to broaden our stakeholder engagement and gather input from across the county. These focus groups will be composed of individuals suggested by chambers, cities, and others in each district. The meetings are anticipated to be 90 minutes in duration and will be facilitated by our project consultant, Courtney Violette of Magellan Advisors.

We hope that you will be able to attend and invite other businesses that represent the economic and business perspectives in your area. The consultant will be seeking input on topics such as 1) existing broadband services, 2) issues with local broadband and 3) future needs for broadband services.

For any questions, please contact Calvin Sandeen (Calvin.Sandeen@sonoma-county.org); EDB staff will handle all logistics for the meetings.
