The Princeton City Council, acting on a report delivered by a long-standing municipal consultant, approved a communication master plan Monday designed to improve Internet capabilities and for underserved residents of the city.
Council approved a resolution unanimously right after hearing from Kimley-Horn representative Kent Kacir on several elements of the master plan during the Monday, Dec. 12 meeting.
The cost of the communication master plan is estimated at $2.08 million, according to Kacir, with the largest single expense contained within that total pegged at $675,000, which he said will improve “underserved community connectivity.”
The city has about $3 million left over from the 2021 American Rescue Plan Act funds, Kacir told the council, so it has a cushion of around $1 million.
Council members received several goals and objectives in the report that Kacir delivered.
