Where is Pitkin County in its Broadband Initiative?

Pitkin County completed a Needs Assessment in the spring of 2015. The summary of this assessment can be accessed here. The County was awarded $150,000 to complete Phase II by the State of Colorado Department of Local Affairs (DOLA). Phase II includes a preliminary design that evaluates the costs to reach the unserved and underserved areas of the Roaring Fork Watershed. The County is currently soliciting bids from private vendors. The outcome of the ballot measure in November 2015 will help steer the direction of Phase II, which is expected to commence in early 2016.
