Rose Park Connect: Rose Park residents looking for Wi-Fi or computer access can now access it through Salt Lake City’s new pilot program, Rose Park Connect. The computer lab is located in a common room at the LDS Meetinghouse on 760 N. 1200 W. Community members will need to maintain social distance and wear a face covering while in the lab. Rose Park Connect is being supported entirely with volunteers and the City providing the computer equipment.
Census staff from the Census Bureau are scheduled to be on-site to answer questions and help residents complete the census. The County is coordinating with the County Health Department to have a community health worker present to provide COVID-19 prevention information as well as face masks for those in need.
The program will run during the month of August and will then be reevaluated to determine if needs are being met and whether adjustments are needed. The City hopes to expand the program to other neighborhoods with the help of community partners interested in participating.
As part of the digital access plan, the City is also working on offering outdoor access to Wi-Fi at the Sorenson Unity Center campus as well as smart solar benches that provide Wi-Fi and charging stations. More information will be released on those projects as they reach completion.
