Broadband survey closes April 16.

OCEANA COUNTY – The Oceana County Economic Alliance, in partnership with Connected Nation Michigan, will close its Connected Community Engagement Survey for Oceana County Friday, April 16.

The program that was launched in early February will leverage the data that has been provided by residents, businesses, community organizations, and others to identify problem areas and solutions for expanding high-speed internet (broadband) access across the county.

A response rate goal of least 10 percent of residents and businesses was set and is on track to be reached. However, additional responses, particularly from the eastern portion of the county, are still needed, according to Jodi Nichols, Business Development Coordinator for Oceana County through The Right Place.

“Every local household, business, and community organization has a role in bringing the benefits of this work to our area,” said OCEA Board Chair, Gayle Forner, at the time of the launch.

Community members who have not yet taken the ten-minute survey at https://myconnectedcommunity.org/oceana-county/ have until 11:59 a.m., April 16, to add their input. Those unable to access the online survey are encouraged to visit any Oceana County library to take the survey online or to get a printed copy that can be completed and returned to OCEA, 844 S. Griswold St. Hart MI 49420.
