Physical Infrastructure emerged as an Accessible Infrastructure topic area at The People’s Roadmap Workshop – Manhattan Edition (December 7, 2017). Use this thread to continue that discussion!

Community thoughts about Current State

  • Infrastructure is not a public utility, but it’s more than just “pipes” (e.g. search placement reviews, etc.) e.g. net neutrality does not fix it all
  • Jammed up conduits
  • Lack of fiber
  • Infrastructure doesn’t guide/direct the usage of it
  • Infrastructure companies can choose to drop/cut-off customers for whatever reasons they want

Community thoughts about Desired Future State

  • City-owned fiber
  • Much infrastructure is in flood prone areas. Plan!
  • Map dark fiber
