The City of Arlington puts technology to work every day to make The American Dream City a better place to live, learn, work and play. One of the latest examples is the City of Arlington’s agreement with SiFi Networks to deploy an open-access fiber network in every neighborhood.

Within the next two years, SiFi Networks is set to begin installing more than 10 million linear feet of fiber through every street. The FiberCity® network, expected to be built out over a five-year period, would then be able to provide a high-speed fiber internet connectivity point to approximately 156,000 residential properties and 16,000 businesses in Arlington.

You can learn more about agreement with SiFi Networks in the latest edition of the quarterly Put Technology to Work newsletter. The edition also features the City’s urban wildlife and bird sighting online reporting tools, the new Local Landmark interactive map, and innovative technology designed to help drivers navigate road construction.

All quarterly City Council priority newsletters are now produced in a digital formal, allowing for layers of additional video content and important links.

The Arlington City Council has identified “Put Technology to Work” as one of five priorities. Technology is an essential aspect of daily life and has quite the impact on our organization, residents, visitors and businesses. It is also integral in achieving the City’s other priorities: Invest in Our Economy, Support Youth and Families, Enhance Regional Mobility and Champion Great Neighborhoods.
