NOTICE OF EARLY PUBLIC REVIEW

Publication Date: Wednesday, July 30, 2014

Notice is hereby given that Lumpkin County has determined that the project hereafter described is proposed to be located in, or may affect, a floodplain as defined by Executive Order 11988: Lumpkin County intends to submit a grant application to the Georgia Department of Community Affairs for Community Development Block Grant-Employment Incentive Program (CDBG-EIP) funding for installation of approximately 3 miles of 96ct fiber optic cable from Highway 52 North along Long Branch Road to Copper Mines Road to facilitate the expansion of a local business. The proposed beneficiary is a heavy user of the Internet and requires large bandwidth for their cloud based company. The current location has Internet, but cannot accommodate the large amounts of data being transferred through the computers. If the Internet is down in the area, the business cannot operate, thus losing the business money from its clients. The proposed solution is to extend broadband to the building. Lumpkin County has additional information on the proposal and such information may be obtained at the Lumpkin County Courthouse located at 99 Courthouse Hill, Suite H, Dahlonega, GA 30533 between the hours of 8am and 5pm on Monday through Friday, except holidays.

NOTICE OF EARLY PUBLIC REVIEW

Publication Date: Wednesday, July 30, 2014

Notice is hereby given that Lumpkin County has determined that the project hereafter described is proposed to be located in, or may affect, a floodplain as defined by Executive Order 11988: Lumpkin County intends to submit a grant application to the Georgia Department of Community Affairs for Community Development Block Grant-Employment Incentive Program (CDBG-EIP) funding for installation of approximately 3 miles of 96ct fiber optic cable from Highway 52 North along Long Branch Road to Copper Mines Road to facilitate the expansion of a local business. The proposed beneficiary is a heavy user of the Internet and requires large bandwidth for their cloud based company. The current location has Internet, but cannot accommodate the large amounts of data being transferred through the computers. If the Internet is down in the area, the business cannot operate, thus losing the business money from its clients. The proposed solution is to extend broadband to the building. Lumpkin County has additional information on the proposal and such information may be obtained at the Lumpkin County Courthouse located at 99 Courthouse Hill, Suite H, Dahlonega, GA 30533 between the hours of 8am and 5pm on Monday through Friday, except holidays.
