Rural Broadband And McLemore Development Town Hall Meetings Planned In Walker County

  • Wednesday, October 5, 2022

Walker County Government, in partnership with Kinetic by Windstream, will address the deployment of a Fiber-to-the-Premises solution to 3,339 homes and businesses in rural Walker County. The project involves extending 323 miles of fiber throughout the Armuchee Valley, Center Post and Kensington communities, among other locations.

“This project will serve many of the unserved and underserved in our community,” said Chairman Shannon Whitfield, Walker County Board of Commissioners. “It’s difficult to accept there are still places in the county where the internet can only be accessed for school or work by using a dial-up modem, if there is any internet connection at all.”

The Rural Broadband Town Hall Meeting will be followed by a presentation from Scenic Land Company to update the community on the McLemore resort project on Lookout Mountain.

Both events will take place in the Wardlaw Meeting Room at the LaFayette-Walker County Public Library.

The town hall on rural broadband will be Monday at 6 p.m. and the town hall on McLemore will follow at 7 p.m. 

The LaFayette-Walker County Public Library is at 305 S. Duke St. in LaFayette.
