Otsego County Launches Connected Community Kick-Off Meeting

By Wil Payton

Otsego County recently held a kick-off meeting to set in motion their participation in Connect Michigan’s Connected Community Engagement Program. Approximately 20 community members attended the meeting that was held July 30 in the University Center at Gaylord.

Tom Stephenson, community technology advisor for Connect Michigan, gave a presentation about the program and provided an overview of the access, adoption and use of broadband in the county. Service providers also presented a briefing on current services and projected plans for service enhancements.

The Otsego County Technology Planning Team is in the initial phase of the program. The first order of business will be to compile the necessary information necessary for program certification. The team anticipates some challenges due to the rural nature of some areas in the county.

The Connected Community Engagement Program, facilitated by Connect Michigan, supports the development of a comprehensive strategy for building a “connected” community by reviewing the technology landscape, developing regional partnerships, establishing local teams, and conducting a thorough community assessment of broadband access, adoption, and use.
