Report on BATF and other City actions, Matt et al.

Subcommittee (Jeff Mishinsky, Matthews, Lorenzo Kristov) appointed to comment on prospective WAVE/COD fiber/conduit agreement. Expected to report at next BATF meeting.

Rob noted that he had looked back to the feasibility report and compared some of the ring infrastructure estimates with requirements for COD INET. Rob noted that changes in network electronics meant that system electronics could be much cheaper, increasing feasibility.

General discussion with agreement that we hope the task force and COD will consider a municipal ring as an alternative to the WAVE agreement and that this might be an important component of a larger muni network approach.

Rob plans to report at the next BATF meeting on the DavisGIG survey (currently at 850 respondents).

Meeting is March 27th.
