As you might be aware, Fauquier County has been trying to figure out ways to improve broadband internet service county-wide. After a planned partnership with Freedom Telecom Services Inc. to build a more robust fiber optic network in Fauquier fell through, the County decided to pursue ‘Plan B’ which would provide enhanced broadband service by incentivizing tower construction in underserved parts of the County.
Since deciding to go forward with this alternative, the Board of Supervisors approved agreements with Calvert Crossland LLC and Milestone Development Inc. The Calvert Crossland LLC agreement provides cash incentives for tower construction in six of seven possible “search ring areas” and the Milestone Development Inc agreement promotes access to County owned property for tower construction.
Fauquier residents-- as this is an important local land use decision, we want to hear what our supporters and members think about the county's approach. Please take a moment to look at the map showing county owned parcels and the "search ring areas" and then fill out this 10-question survey:
