WHEREAS, on January 27, 1997, the U.S. Department of Commerce, through the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, issued a Notice of Availability of Grant Funds for the 1997 Telecommunications and Information Infrastructure Assistance Program under which up to $750,000.00 may be awarded to each application; and

 

WHEREAS, the City has participated in the past in the creation of a neighborhood network which provides vital City information to neighborhood associations for planning and decision-making; and

 

WHEREAS, the City proposal will address the needs of making information about City services and basic City information available to a much broader community-wide network; and

 

WHEREAS, the proposal will consolidate existing community databases on available jobs, human and social support services, as well as transportation access, which will then be made available to individuals through existing network sites including selected fire stations; and

 

WHEREAS, the proposal will allow the City to assist the participating not-for-profit organizations in making strategic decisions about service delivery and resource allocation by providing access for the analysis of census tract data, service provider data, and the graphic representation of that analysis via the City's Geographic Information System (GIS); NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:
