Enhancing the 757’s appeal as a place to live, learn, and do business.
The SNA was created in November 2019 by the five Virginia cities of Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk, and Virginia Beach. Phase I of this project includes building out a 119-mile fiber ring that will connect the 5 Southside Virginia cities of Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk, and Virginia Beach.
During the SNA Board Meeting held on November 12, 2021, the Board adopted two resolutions.
• Resolution 2021-01 directed the SNA Executive Director (ED) to enter the Detail Phase of negotiations regarding a possible public-private partnership to operate and market the SNA Regional Connectivity Ring.
• Resolution 2021-02 directed the SNA ED to award a construction and maintenance contract to build the fiber ring upon securing necessary funding. Subsequently, a construction contract was awarded to Danella Construction, Inc.
Zoom log-in details will be emailed out to registrants in advance of the session.
