Eastgate Awarded for Broadband Study at National Conference


Eastgate is proud to announce that we were recognized by the National Association of Regional Councils (NARC) with a Medium Metro Achievement Award for our 2021 Eastgate Regional Broadband Feasibility Study. NARC held their annual conference in Columbus this year, and Eastgate’s Director of Planning & Development, Joann Esenwein was in attendance to collect the award. The broadband feasibility study is the result of a collaborative regional effort between each of the region’s three counties (Ashtabula, Mahoning, & Trumbull) & Eastgate, with funding being awarded to complete the study by both the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) and the Economic Development Administration (EDA).

The study serves as a roadmap in the expansion of broadband internet throughout the region while providing the tools necessary to close the digital divide in both rural and urban communities. For more on Eastgate’s efforts in broadband, please visit
