A more detailed list, including maps, of proposed funded service areas under ARRA is available online for public viewing. According to the webpage, “this page enables users to view and/or respond to published Public Notice Filings (PNFs) for BIP and BTOP Infrastructure applications. Providing a response is strictly voluntary. Existing service providers are not required to provide a response to any Public Notice Filing, but must do so in order for their existing services to be considered when determining the eligibility of the proposed funded service areas identified in the associated BIP or BTOP Infrastructure application.”
Incumbants wishing to file a response must log-in and use the mapping tool to provide a map of their existing service territory. A Mapping Tool Users Guide can be found here. Instructions on filing a response begin on page 18.
