Announcement 

Free WiFi in Houston City Parks? Take our survey. The City of Houston Mayor's Office, Houston Parks and Recreation Department (HPARD), Houston Information and Technology Services (HITS), other city departments and organizations are working together to improve #DigitalConnectivity inside city parks as part of #Houston's Resilience Plan and 50/50 Parks Partners Initiative. Let us hear your thoughts on whether #FreeWiFi should be provided in some city parks. Take the survey at http://bit.ly/houstonwifi by December 23rd. 

Background and Purpose: 

The City of Houston continues to strive to be a leader in technology and solutions to meet the needs of its citizens and strengthen its national reputation as a green space leader. In response to the Covid pandemic and continued natural disaster emergencies, there is more need than ever for a Digital Connectivity Master Plan for Houston's parks to provide reliable, consistent digital connectivity services, such as free WiFi.  This effort also supports the City of Houston's Resilience Plan, 50/50 Parks Partners Initiative, and complements Comcast’s initiative to equip nine City of Houston Community Centers with WiFi-connected “Lift Zones” before the end of 2020. 

The City's Mayor's Office, Houston Parks and Recreation Department (HPARD), Houston Information and Technology Services (HITS), and other city departments and organizations are working together and they want to hear from the Citizens of Houston.  This survey provides a way to find out more about how the new service will be used as well as an opportunity to gather general feedback from Houston park visitors.  The information received will feed into the overall plan.  The deadline to take the survey is December 23rd.  bit.ly/houstonwifi
