Avon Soliciting Input Regarding Broadband Services 

for Residents and Businesses

 

The Town of Avon has initiated a discovery study to gain a clearer understanding of broadband needs in Avon. An online survey is now available to gather specific information from residents and businesses. The survey will be available through April 30th, and may be accessed at https://engage.avon.org/broadband

The Town understands that broadband is a critical service for businesses, organizations, and citizens. This study will allow the Town’s leadership to gain a clearer understanding of what steps may be required to gain and maintain a competitive advantage in terms of broadband and to make sure that the community’s needs are met. The initial phase of the study includes gathering input from Town residents, businesses, and key stakeholders to compare against industry data. 

“We want to take the steps to make sure our citizens and businesses have the connectivity they need to thrive in Avon. We also view broadband as essential infrastructure to maintain Avon as one of the top destinations to work and live,” said Avon Town Manager Eric Heil.  “Our first step is to understand our current broadband infrastructure and the preferences and needs of our community.” 

“It is important that we receive broad input from residents and businesses through the survey,” Heil continued. “Our project consultant, HR Green, will also be interviewing government representatives and leaders from various industries during that time to gather additional information.”   

The study and analysis will be completed this summer. The Town has contracted with HR Green, a national broadband consulting firm who has worked extensively throughout Colorado and in Eagle County, to complete the broadband study. 

For questions about Municipal Broadband or this survey, please contact Avon IT Manager Robert McKenner at rmckenner@avon.org or (970) 748-4034.
