Wifi hotspot in Falls Village
FALLS VILLAGE — Residents of and visitors to downtown Falls Village will soon be able to take advantage of a wifi hotspot at 107 Main St.
Felicia Jones, the town’s economic development director, said the wifi hotspot should be installed this week and will cover the town Green.
Two points will be installed on the exterior of the building. There will be a sign-in feature.
Jones said this is the second project of the Community Development Corporation, the first being planting pollinating plants in the downtown areas.
Jones said the COVID-19 pandemic and related shutdowns, especially of the D.M. Hunt Library, meant that many residents who do not have internet service at home were suddenly cut off. (The library has since reopened, with safety precautions.)
The $5,800 wifi grant came from the Foundation for Community Health.
