    A new Steering Committee for the Westchester County Association’s Smart Growth for Gigabit initiative was announced today by William M. Mooney, Jr., President and CEO of the Westchester County Association.

    The Committee will oversee bringing gigabit-speed broadband to Westchester, beginning with its four largest cities, by giving guidance to the effort, as well as raising seed funding to pave the way for this needed infrastructure.

    The committee is comprised of “some of the most informed, respected, and enterprising individuals in our midst,” Mr. Mooney said in his announcement. Mr. Mooney said that the Committee held its first meeting and anticipates that in May, an RFP for a national consultant to assess the county’s current infrastructure, market realities, and help determine the best course of action to bring gigabit broadband into the county will be issued.
