America's Best Communities

Carbondale Main Street is spearheading Carbondale's participation in the America's Best Communities competition sponsored by Frontier and Dish Network. Along with 49 other cities, Carbondale advanced to the quarterfinalist round in the competition earlier this year, winning $50,000 to further develop the city's proposed economic development plan. First place wins $3 million to implement the proposed plan, 2nd place wins $2 million and 3rd place $1 million.

Carbondale's proposed plan focuses on enhancing internet access for its residents, with installation of a gigabit broadband system, wireless access throughout downtown as well as removing utility poles, burying the cables so as to reduce the likelihood of breakage and enhance the downtown appearance.
