> To: Town Council
> From: Terri Buckner
> Date: June 19, 2005
> RE: Downtown Wireless Initiative
>
> After the June 15, 2005 Council meeting, the Town Manager referred a
> citizen petition to the Technology Advisory Committee requesting that a
> wireless network be established to serve the neighborhoods of Northside
> and Pine Knolls. Currently, the Downtown Economic Development
> Corporation is in the very early stages of pursuing a downtown wireless
> initiative and a town-wide wireless network is included as one of the
> activities in the Technology Advisory Committee's 2005-2006 strategic
> plan (presented to Council on March 23, 2005).
>
> I hereby request that Council authorize the Technology Advisory
> Committee to work together with the Downtown Economic Development
> Corporation and any other town or university group that may be involved
> in planning and implementing a downtown or citywide wireless initiative.
> Such collaboration would include, but not be limited to, determining the
> coverage area, reviewing and selecting platform and hardware, reviewing
> and contracting with consultants, designing a business plan, and
> promoting the idea with citizens and local businesses.
