Kittitas (pronounced 'KITT-i-tass') County is located in central Washington
State. It spans from the lush forested Cascade Mountains to the upper Yakima River Valley plains and
the Columbia River.
Kittitas County government recognizes high-speed internet connectivity is limited at best and not available to all in Kittitas County.
The challenges presented during the pandemic expedited the need for a full and open identification of how we, as a community, can ensure affordable,
reliable access for businesses and residents, particularly those who are unserved or underserved.
In response to the challenges presented during the pandemic and looking forward as a community, Kittitas County formed the Kittitas County Broadband Action Team.
A broadband action team (BAT) is a working group of public and private stakeholders organized around bringing high-speed internet connectivity to unserved and
underserved areas and ensuring all residents possess the skills and supports needed to fully benefit from that connectivity.
To fulfill our goal of increased and improved connectivity for our citizens Kittitas County’s Broadband Action Team’s has adopted the following mission and vision:
MISSION: To bring together decision-makers dedicated to creating policy, partnerships, and projects that advance access to high-speed internet for all residents of Kittitas County.
VISION: Reliable access to high-speed internet service in Kittitas County no matter where you work or live.
