    A new Steering Committee for the Westchester County Association’s Smart Growth for Gigabit initiative was announced today by William M. Mooney, Jr., President and CEO of the Westchester County Association.

    The Committee will oversee bringing gigabit-speed broadband to Westchester, beginning with its four largest cities, by giving guidance to the effort, as well as raising seed funding to pave the way for this needed infrastructure.
