Internet Stimulus

Cynthia Barnett | 5/1/2010

In one of Florida’s largest federal stimulus grants, the North Florida Broadband Authority was awarded $30 million to develop and enhance broadband internet service in a
14-county region designated as a Rural Area of Critical Concern. The project aims to jump-start economic development in the region and advance education, healthcare and other sectors increasingly dependent on high-speed connectivity. The counties that will benefit are Baker, Bradford, Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Jefferson, Lafayette, Levy, Madison, Putnam, Suwannee, Taylor and Union.

  • Increase efforts toward restoration, esp. in light of rising sea level
  • Status quo - keep trying to fix it, as we have been
  • Get realistic. We will never restore it with millions living in South Florida.
