Public Access Television for College Park, MD sign now

The City of College Park, MD is in the midst of a renaissance. A renewed interest in community and civic service is underway, and there is a push to draw together the community through a variety of activities, including the recent College Park Day event, and the Experience and Enjoy College Park Tour.

One of the methods that could help draw these groups together is the establishment of a community-based television station. Based upon the principles of open-access and free-speech, community television would provide a forum for all residents to express their views, share community events, and offer an outlet for other forms of creative and civic expression.

The citizens of College Park have already contributed the funding needed to initiate such a service, through the collection of PEG funds in each cable-subscriber's monthly bill. This funding would cover the equipment necessary to establish broadcast services. With the assistance of volunteers, the program could run at minimal operational cost to the city.

At this time, we ask that:

1) The City of College Park exercise it's right to initiate a public access channel on each of the City's cable systems;

2) That they acquire such equipment as necessary to allow residents to produce and broadcast programs of their own creation;

3) That they base this community television service out of Davis Hall, or another suitable point in north College Park, to help provide convenient access to the City's population-center.
