Cicero, IN – The Town of Cicero’s Economic Development Committee along with the Cicero Town Council has announced the near completion of a project that will provide free public WiFi in select locations within the community. The initial launch of this offering will be during the Lights Over Morse Lake festival over the fourth of July holiday. The Town has partnered with On-Ramp Indiana, a privately owned company located in Noblesville which specializes on fixed wireless broadband, direct fiber access, and data center services including private cloud servers and colocation, since the fall of 2016. The Free Public WiFi offering will be available in the following common areas:
- Jackson Street between Main Street and State Road 19/Peru Street
- Red Bridge Park
- Community Park
- The Cicero Sports Complex (the baseball/softball fields) along Stringtown Pike
“Members of the Cicero Economic Development Committee are excited to partner with On-Ramp Indiana to provide this Free Public WiFi offering to residents and visitors of the Cicero community. We believe the opportunity to remain connected in Cicero’s most visited areas will further enhance the quality of life in and around the community,” stated Cicero Economic Development Committee President, Joe Cox. Once completed, a network name will be established and instructions on how to login will be published and available to residents and visitors. This project will help strengthen the Town’s efforts to grow community and economic development in Cicero. “The Town continues to encourage and support worthwhile community and economic development projects, such as this free public WiFi project, which will aid in our efforts to provide quality amenities for residents and visitors.
Through public and private partnerships, grant opportunities, and supportive business owners and residents, 2019 has been a great year full of development projects within the community,” said Chris Lutz, Town Council President. Two additional projects are set to be completed by the end of summer: the downtown Façade Improvement project, which was funded through the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs’ Main Street Revitalization Program and Historic Renovation Grant Program and by participating building owners; and the major road restoration project on East Jackson Street, which was partially funded by the Indiana Department of Transportation’s Community Crossing Matching Grant program. These two project total an investment of nearly $2 million dollars in Cicero. For additional information on this project or any of the Town of Cicero’s projects, please call 317-984-4900.
