A goal of the Town is to provide free Wi-Fi to public housing neighborhoods to narrow the digital divide. As a result of this project, students will be provided with internet access to do homework online. Town Staff will be meeting with representatives of UNC, CHCCS and the Kramden Institute over summer to strategize how to meet this need, possibly using the Town's fiber infrastructure, moving forward. We anticipate providing an update to Council in fall 2015.
Roles and responsibilities will be defined for the Town advisory board. We will evaluate the impact of changes Council has made to the system of development review for boards and continue adapting a software package, Granicus, to Town needs.
