Greenbrier County Broadband Committee to Hold Rally for Rural Broadband Access

Now is the time to enhance broadband across West Virginia. If we all work together, we can connect the hills and hollows of rural America. And we need your help!

The newly-formed Greenbrier County Broadband Council will hold a rally for broadband on Friday, June 4 at 5:30 p.m. at the greenpsace in the center of downtown Lewisburg. First Friday activities also will be taking place.

The rally will bring together local and statewide partners to push for immediate action on broadband enhancement. Central to this expansion is the American Rescue Plan, which provides funds to counties, cities, and towns to decide how to best spend the funds to benefit their communities. Most importantly, public participation is needed. Attendees will be given opportunities to fill out a broadband survey, help out with mapping, and sign a petition for a special legislative session on broadband. There will also be an art project for children.

Participants include:

Senator Stephen Baldwin (& other legislators locally and from across the state)

Generation West Virginia & Generation Greenbrier Valley

Greenbrier County Commission & Region 4 Planning Commission

Greater Greenbrier Chamber of Commerce

Greenbrier County Schools

WV School of Osteopathic Medicine

Robert C. Byrd Clinic

Greenbrier County Public Libraries

Greenbrier Valley Economic Development Authority

Greenbrier Valley Convention & Visitor’s Bureau

Greenbrier County Schools (including band & cheerleaders)

Office of Senator Joe Manchin

Additional information will be forthcoming.
