CINCINNATI– (BUSINESS WIRE) –Colerain Township is pleased to announce a new initiative with Cincinnati Bell Inc. to provide free high-speed public WiFi in four parks within the township:
Skyline Park: 8507 Neptune Drive
Groesbeck Park: 8296 Clara Avenue
Worth Park: 3460 Galbraith Road
Clippard Park: 3500 evidence lane
Colerain Township is partnering with Cincinnati Bell’s UniCity Smart City program on the WiFi project, funded by a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). Hamilton County is supporting 41 jurisdictions with CDBG funds in a variety of projects that improve the quality of life for all residents, including: park and playground improvements, senior center improvements, ADA accessibility infrastructure, and facade improvement programs among other community-centered projects. The project will help Colerain Township to connect with the residents and visitors of their park system, to engage them and to inform them.
“This project is helping our township to bridge the digital divide by offering our residents free internet access in our beautiful township parks,” said township administrator Geoff Milz. “It also adds a convenience to our parks that has not existed in the past and improves the experience for those who use them. We are grateful for our partnership with Cincinnati Bell and for the financial support from Hamilton County Community Development that made this possible. ”
UniCity works with governments of all sizes to solve problems through smart city solutions and builds on a foundation of connectivity through fiber optic and public high-speed WiFi networks.
