Cherokee County begins its efforts in the development of our county broadband plan which will be incorporated into the East Texas Regional Plan. The Cherokee County Kickoff is scheduled for Tuesday, August 12, 2014, at 9:30 am at the Rusk Civic Center, located at 555 Euclid St in Rusk. The entire county is invited and encouraged to attend the kickoff to help develop and complete our broadband initiative for Cherokee County.
With the guidance of Connected Texas and ETCOG, our communities will join to become a planning team to generate a locally endorsed blueprint that will guide our efforts to accelerate the availability and use of technology. This planning effort will guide the creation of a more robust business environment, more effective community and economic development, improved healthcare, increased educational opportunities, and more efficient government.
The Kickoff meeting will not only inform our local governments, local businesses, schools, and residents of our efforts but also be a first step workshop to gather critical information about our internet needs in Cherokee County. In order to ensure the success of our project, we ask that you join us and share information on your personal and business needs for internet service in the rural areas. Meeting details are below.
