from the March 5, 2007 BACA Meeting


Wireless Network Proposal: ANC 5C Commissioner Stuart Davenport , SMD 5C03, made a presentation regarding his interest in possibly constructing a wireless network in the Bloomingdale-Shaw East/Truxton Circle communities. Such a network would give residents of the immediate area free access to the World Wide Web and, in theory, could improve communications between and among residents as well as the members of indigenous neighborhood organizations. Commissioner Davenport envisions this project as one that would be implemented and maintained via the use of grant funding and a secondary benefit of the project concerns the educational value that it would have to those students from Dunbar Senior High School as well as the McKinley Technology High School who would be asked to actively participate in the actual construction of the network. At this point, Commissioner Davenport's ideas about the proposed network are very preliminary. Indeed, he will continue to work on them and keep us posted of further developments concerning this proposal as they ripen and are poised to be put into action.
