July 10, 2017, West Bloomfield, Michigan – The Greater West Bloomfield Cable Communications Commission (GWBCCC) recently launched an online survey to capture feedback from residents within its viewing area, which includes West Bloomfield, Keego Harbor, Orchard Lake and Sylvan Lake. The survey can be accessed at www.gwbcable.org, July 10th through August 15th.
“This community engagement project is an important part of our strategic plan for the next few years,” commented Harvey Gersin, GWBCCC chairperson for the last seven years. “In addition to what we will learn from targeted focus groups and a Community Conversation, the survey feedback will help us assess our residents’ needs, interests, and potential concerns regarding Civic Center TV programming.” The Commission will also host a Community Conversation, which will be open to residents in all four communities at 6:30 p.m. on August 10th at West Bloomfield Township Hall, located at 4550 Walnut Lake Road. The two-hour event will include a facilitated, group discussion about current and future Civic Center TV programming.
Just as the Greater West Bloomfield communities collaborate through other organizations, such as the Youth Assistance, the public library, and Community Coalition, residents from all four communities are represented on the 12-member Cable Communications Commission, which serves as a resident advocate with cable providers and oversees programming for Civic Center TV – Comcast channels 15 and 915, AT&T channel 99, and civiccentertv.com.
“The Greater West Bloomfield community has a rich history of diversity,” added Anne Dziuba, chairperson of the GWBCCC Programming Committee. “Greater West Bloomfield, for example, is home to more than 70,000 ethnically-diverse residents and seven school districts where 54 different languages are spoken. It’s critical that we hear from as many residents as possible to ensure that we select and develop inclusive programming.”
To encourage participation, the GWBCCC is offering an opportunity for those who complete the online survey to enter a drawing for retail and restaurant gift cards.
The Greater West Bloomfield Cable Communication Commission consists of 12 members appointed by four communities – Keego Harbor, Orchard Lake, Sylvan Lake, and West Bloomfield – to advocate for and educate residents regarding cable television and operate Civic Center TV. The Commission operates on the premise that local cable and the internet are valuable community resources and that government at all levels should be accessible and accountable.
