Bourne Digital Equity Community Workshop Scheduled for Next Week
Do you experience problems with internet connection or speed? Do you have a reliable device to connect you to the internet? Are you confident using devices and online platforms to access services like mobile banking and telehealth?
The Town of Bourne is working with the Cape Cod Commission to form a municipal digital equity plan to improve internet access and accessibility. This planning effort will help the town understand the community’s needs and identify where additional resources are needed.
Community participation is a critical component of this planning effort. The community is invited to attend an upcoming Community Workshop to share your thoughts.
Bourne Digital Equity Community Workshop
November 13, 2023 | 6:00 PM
Bourne Veteran’s Memorial Community Center
235 Main Street, Buzzards Bay
While in-person attendance is preferred, a virtual option is available and can be found on the website below.
The Town of Bourne’s Municipal Digital Equity Plan will assess the digital divide in Bourne and identify opportunities to advance digital equity. The plan will consider the affordability of internet service, access to technology necessary for participation in civic, social, and economic life, and the skills required for meaningful digital engagement.
Once finalized, the Municipal Digital Equity Plan will prepare the Town of Bourne for funding opportunities and guide decision-making, investment, and implementation.
This project is funded by the Massachusetts Broadband Institute at the MassTech Collaborative under the Municipal Digital Equity Planning Program. Funding was provided by Massachusetts ARPA State Fiscal Recovery Funds.
