Marion County, Oregon Retains Magellan for Implementation of its Broadband Strategic Plan

 

  • Magellan Advisors

DENVER, CO — Marion County, Oregon is continuing its partnership with Magellan Advisors for assistance with the implementation of the County’s Broadband Strategic Plan. Magellan previously worked with the County to develop the Plan, which provided recommendations to increase the availability of robust broadband to enable economic development and quality of life for residents and businesses.

This first phase of the Broadband Strategic Plan’s implementation will focus on developing the Plan’s public policy recommendations to promote the deployment of broadband infrastructure. Magellan’s team will work with the County itself as well as the cities of Jefferson and Silverton to develop broadband-friendly policies including wireless ordinances, small cell master license agreements, railroad boring agreements and dig once and joint trench policies and strategies. These policies and agreements will be designed to encourage investment by telecommunications carriers and to facilitate efforts by the County and its partners in building additional broadband assets. Magellan brings knowledge of best practices in cost-effective, resource-efficient local policies and practices for streamlining deployment of these technologies, bringing much needed connectivity to communities throughout Marion County.

This first step of the Broadband Strategic Plan’s implementation will allow Magellan’s West Coast team to continue its work with the County’s leadership to bring together stakeholders such as anchor institutions and broadband providers to improve the availability of high-speed internet. Rural regions such as Marion County are increasingly reliant on broadband connections to enable teleworking, telelearning and telehealth, and Magellan is positioned to make these technologies a reality.
