Regional Broadband Strategic Plan
SCCOG received a DOLA grant in 2015 to secure a consultant to develop a Broadband Strategic Plan to include Huerfano, Las Animas, Pueblo Counties and Raton Basin Regional Economic Development District (REDD) including cities and towns within those counties. A draft plan has been developed that addresses high-seed internet service for business and residents and public efforts to improve broadband availability within the region. The results of this effort will position the region to develop a coordinated approach to build on statewide efforts to improve regional rural broadband service to serve needed economic development. The plan reflects bi-state coordination between Colorado and New Mexico specifically Colfax County via Raton Basin REDD.
