Gov. Holcomb announces additional $6.3 million in Next Level Broadband grants
Brings the total grant amount to $28.4 million for the program’s first round
INDIANAPOLIS — Governor Eric J. Holcomb today announced the Next Level Broadband program has awarded an additional $6.3 million in funding to bring the first round total to $28.4 million for 14 broadband expansion infrastructure projects across the state.
The total first round funding will provide broadband infrastructure to more than 11,300 homes and commercial locations in 18 counties.
“In the 21st century, high quality, affordable broadband is essential to the success of Hoosiers and our state,” Gov. Holcomb said. “Economic development, the health of our citizens and our quality of life will be directly impacted by expanding broadband to these unserved areas.”
Today’s award of $6.3 million for three broadband expansion infrastructure projects closes the Next Level Broadband program’s first round of funding. The initial $22.1 million for 11 broadband expansion infrastructure projects was announced in August.
The $100 million Next Level Broadband program is the largest single state investment in broadband. For the first round of funding, service providers could apply for up to $5 million per project to expand service to unserved areas if they provided at least a 20 percent match. Unserved areas are those without at least one telecommunication provider offering internet fast enough to provide the most basic services – at least 10 Mbps download and 1 Mbps upload.
Proposed Innovation Park In Georgetown
The Floyd County Board of Commissioners and Floyd County Redevelopment Commission are applying for a zoning map change though the Floyd County Plan Commission. The request is to change an existing sixty (60) acre tract located in Georgetown Township from Rural Residential to Office Business. The purpose for this request is the future development of Novaparke, the County’s Innovation and Technology campus.
This site was identified in the 2011 Edwardsville Gateway Master Plan to be the site for county’s effort to create a location to promote STEM business and employment development. Formerly known as the Beams and O’Brien properties, the site lends itself to the proposed use as an innovation and technology campus. The site is located in proximity to the Georgetown-Edwardsville Exit onto Interstate 64, it is located adjacent to the Town of Georgetown sanitary sewer east lift station and an Edwardsville Water Company main. As part of the proposed development plan, the County has been working with INDOT for a fully signalized intersection. This will include connecting the northern leg of the intersection with Oakes Road.
The project will be located at 6621 St Rd 64, Georgetown, IN 47122.
Project information is available for review below or at the office of the Floyd County Director of Operations and County Planning, 2524 Corydon Pike, Suite 204, New Albany, 1N 47150 between the hours of 9am-12pm and 1pm- 4pm.
