NAEDP Nelson Broadband Initiative Survey

I recently received the following email from Tom Thomson of the Nelson Chamber of Commerce, and I am re-posting it for the interest of Secure by Design customers:

The City of Nelson has recently completed electric service upgrades to the downtown core of Nelson. This also involved laying fiber optic cable that allowed the City to connect local government buildings:Fiber Optic Cable

  • White Building
  • Nelson Library and Police Station building
  • Nelson and Area Recreation Complex
  • Regional District of Central Kootenay Building

Given that this fiber infrastructure is in place within the downtown core of Nelson, the Nelson and Area Economic Development Partnership (NAEDP) has embarked on a strategy to stimulate further economic development for the community. The NAEDP will focus on how this project can maximize the economic benefit to Nelson and Area businesses.

The Chamber on behalf of The Nelson and Area Economic Development Partnership recently completed five focus groups sessions with businesses in the downtown core of Nelson. These focus group sessions included small business owners and managers from various business sectors — medical, tourism, retail, education, services, manufacturing, professional and technology. The focus group research effort is designed to help assess demand, evaluate knowledge and determine technology interests/needs among local businesses.

We are looking for one last push of data as we complete our assessment and prepare the final report for the City. If your business is located in the downtown core of Nelson, we ask that you take 3 minutes to complete the following survey:

Thank you for your valuable input.

Tom Thomson
Executive Director
Nelson and District Chamber of Commerce
