Please take a minute to take this survey from Community Concepts

Community Concepts is looking for help in gaining a grant.  Please take the following survey to provide them with the information they need! 

By way of background, the Northern Forest Center in partnership with Axiom Technologies of Machias and Community Concepts Finance Corporation (CCFC) of S. Paris was awarded a $78,600 grant for broadband internet planning from the ConnectME Authority, Maine’s broadband/Internet state agency. Here is a link to a Sun Journal article about the project…

The grant is targeted to the Maine West region which includes towns and townships in the River Valley, Bethel area and Oxford Hills.

Planning grants support the work needed for developing plans to expand the availability of broadband services in unserved and underserved areas.

One of the first steps in the planning process is surveying Maine West residents and businesses to find out what internet service they have now, how satisfied they are with their service, and what more they would like and need to do what they cannot do now.
