Mission: to work together across neighboring communities to consistently protect and improve the unique and relatively unspoiled character of the physical, economic and social worlds we share for the benefit of our future generations.
The Southwest Florida Regional Planning Council, in partnership with the Central Florida Regional Planning Council and the Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council, received a grant from the State Department of Management Services to develop a broadband toolkit and training manual. The broadband toolkit contains databases, surveys, models, and other tools necessary to assess broadband demand and create a strategic broadband plan. The broadband toolkit will also be applicable to any community or region, rural, suburban or urban. The broadband training manual will guide community leaders and stakeholders through the planning process, providing instruction as to the use and applicability of the broadband toolkit.
