Rindge high-speed Internet project stalled after town vote to cut ties to Southwest Region Planning Commission

The stream line that allowed Fast Roads to provide Internet to several business and residences in Rindge was built thanks to grant money and a fund-rasing initiative, but now town officials say they don’t have the tools to apply for a number of additional grants.
In order to apply for some grants, the town needs to present certain maps and data to the entity granting the funds. In the past, these were provided by the Southwest Region Planning Commission, a Keene-based regional planning agency. But in March, voters decided they didn’t want certain federal grants supporting local projects in Rindge, and decided to cut their relationship with the Southwest Region Planning Commission.
