More than 50 public town hall meetings, including several in the Corridor, have been scheduled across Iowa to get feedback from everyday Iowans on digital services, including broadband, in their area.
The meetings are being hosted by the Iowa Department of Management’s Office of the Chief Information Officer.
“We want to hear from Iowans of all walks of life on how they use the internet and digital services in general,” state officials said in a news release. “If you ever felt like the digital world is passing you by, for whatever reason, this is your chance to speak up and help Iowa identify ways to help you and your community.”
Attendees will hear a short presentation on digital services followed by a discussion with the audience on the barriers and potential solutions for full participation in the digital aspects of society. All meetings will start at 6 p.m. at the designated locations and are anticipated to last about 90 minutes.
Meetings in the Corridor are scheduled as follows:
- Cedar Rapids, March 15, Kirkwood Community College, Iowa Hall Meeting Room B, 6301 Kirkwood Blvd. SW
- Cedar Rapids, April 11, Cedar Rapids Downtown Public Library, Beems Auditorium A/B, 450 Fifth Ave. SE
