Broadband input sought in West End on Thursday

By Peninsula Daily News staff

FORKS — An opportunity to provide input regarding the expansion of broadband services on the West End is planned at an open house Thursday.

The event will be held at the Olympic Natural Resources Center, 1455 S. Forks Ave., from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

The Western Olympic Local Technology Planning Team, or WOLTPT, would like to invite members of the public to an open house to gather input on broadband needs of West End communities of the Olympic Peninsula.

The WOLTPT project, funded by the state Department of Commerce, is a yearlong effort to explore opportunities to expand and improve access to broadband throughout the western Olympic Peninsula.

The planning team, consisting of representatives from Sen. Patty Murray’s office, Rep. Derek Kilmer’s office, Washington State University Extension and the North Olympic Peninsula Resource Conservation and Development Council will be on hand with information on the needs, challenges, barriers and opportunities for broadband expansion across the Olympic Peninsula West End communities.

For more information, phone project manager Betsy Carlson at 360-379-5610 or email woltpt@gmail.com.
