  • Another Finding from IBM regarding our Infrastructure was not the lack of access to broadband in the downtown focus area but rather the lack of broadband adoption that impacts our downtown revitalization efforts, the small business’s digital divide is impacting their growth (noted that just with a digital presence, small business’s can recognize $8 more revenue, but by actively managing a digital presence, that revenue increases to $23K) This is a Quick Win for the city.Rural now has a Global presence – Mexican Pastries / Advertise on Craig’s listOnce adoption rate takes off, will be even more important to have Ultra High Speed broadband for research capabilities example a R&D company work with Lawrence Livermore Labs to send data to their Super Computer to crunch the data

  • We’re taking a unique step and moving the city forward in reverse action by focusing on a rural wireless broadband strategy 1st in order to drive our Ag Economy. This in turn drives technology adoption in the city which has a direct impact to our city’s economic development that expand Ag technology businesses and future Ag Technololgy research and development businesses that we are strategically targeting to locate in the underutilized downtown area
  • Putting this concept all together looks complex but shows how all 6 components of the strategy work together:With wireless broadband in the rural area, benefits not only the Farm Field, but also Telemedicine greatly benefits veterans that are locating in the rural area and aren’t getting the healthcare access as they should because of having to drive into the city… Distance Learning Obama initiative so all have equal access to quality educationRobert Trans & Logistics/Public Safety/ Direct Market AccessFood SafetyAgro TourismThese 6 components then drive the development of the AgTech Cluster/TeleHealth/Downtown Redevelopment with new AgTech Research businesses located there which is why Ultra high speed broadband for downtown is now on Mayor Swearengin 2nd term agenda / Public Safety???/ which also then drive Better Government for the City’s Administration/General Plan/using Big Data (example: by connecting Ag land data from the rural area through broadband, the city can use modeling tools to analyze the true impact that developing a residential neighborhood on fertile land truly has – calculating the crop revenues of a 25 year period compared to developer fees and property taxes can greatly aide in better planning decisions.
  • New opportunity to work with local governments to establish Ultra High-speed Broadband in targeted zones that simultaneously serve as a carrot for technology related business growth and leverage existing city assets.

  • 2. Our planet has, at most, 12 percent more arable land available for intensive crop production. "The only environmentally sustainable alternative is to double productivity on fertile, non-erodible soils,” Dr. Robert Thompson Senior Fellow Global Agricultural Development and Food Security, Chicago Council on Global Affairs, former Director of Agriculture and Rural Development and Senior Advisor for Agricultural Trade Policy, World Bank October 7, 2011 the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies
  • 3. More Food Production Please !!! The New Oliver Twist circa 2050 “We find that yields in these top four crops are increasing at 1.6% [maize], 1.0% [rice], 0.9% [wheat], and 1.3% [soybeans] per year, non-compounding rates, respectively, which is less than the 2.4% per year rate required to double global production by 2050.” Yield Trends Are Insufficient to Double Global Crop Production by 2050 -- PLOS ONE June 19, 2013
