Another Technology Milestone for Ontario County, NY

Almost a decade ago, Fairweather Consulting completed Ontario County’s first economic development strategy.  One of the key recommendations of that strategy was to focus on improving broadband connectivity in the County.  A few years later, we were asked to update the strategy with a much stronger focus on technology-based economic development.

The County Office of Economic Development & Industrial Development Agency really took the ball and ran with it.  They funded some initial feasibility studies to determine the best way to extend broadband throughout this largely rural county.  This recent headline in the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle heralds their latest amazing accomplishment:

By the way, Fairweather Consulting is still at work with them.  We are putting together a balanced scorecard to help them monitor their economic development progress.
