We’ve been quiet here at Nevada County Connected, but Spiral’s gigabit fiber optic project has been steadily moving forward for the past three months. Before we break ground this fall, we’ve been compiling an exhaustive environmental report in the Zone A project area. This includes identifying and mapping both biological and historical assets. Given both our Gold Rush and native American histories, as well as our foothill water and plant diversity, there’s been a lot to map. The good news is that since we will be boring (yes, all underground) primarily along the edge of existing roads, our approval should move forward readily upon submittal.
Also, our new offices in the Nevada County Tech Center are being designed and the full team is expected to come aboard at summer’s end. Nick Katzman, Spiral’s Neighborhood Coordinator, is already scheduling Zone A homeowner’s and road association meetings. If you’d like to set one up, call Nick at 478-9822.
It’s an exciting time. Once we hit the dirt, they’ll be lots to report and these posts will be much more frequent. Stay tuned and thanks for your patience.
