Roscommon County Earns Certification as a Connected Community

ROSCOMMON — On Monday, June 17, Roscommon County will be officially certified as a Connected Community by Connect Michigan.

As part of this recognition, county representatives will release a Technology Action Plan that will include results of an assessment undertaken by the county.

The Roscommon County Technology Action Plan contains specific recommendations of projects to expand digital literacy, build awareness for the benefits of broadband, and assist businesses with websites and social media, and improving the online presence of local governments, among others. Achieving Connected certification affords a community an avenue to discuss its success and pursue opportunities as a recognized, technologically advanced community.

The certification takes place at 10 a.m. at the Roscommon County Commission Chambers, 500 Lake St., Roscommon.

The Connected Community Engagement Program, facilitated by Connect Michigan, supports the development of a comprehensive strategy for building a “connected” community by reviewing the technology landscape, developing regional partnerships, establishing local teams, and conducting a thorough community assessment of broadband access, adoption, and use.
