As many of you know  by now, we signed a new contract providing cable  service to  IW 
First,  let me say as Tim wrote there are many details to follow.
Yes , I did plan on having meetings in the fall with Comcast and Blue stream and we were proceeding with plans to do that. 
 
However; much to our surprise, Bluestream sent us a revised proposal with a 30 day window giving us savings  and features beyond what Comcast had proposed. 
The savings specifics will follow as they are lengthy .
Having said that their bulk rate has significant savings in addition they will be installing new fiber optics thru out the park, at no cost to the the park or individual homeowners. Each unit will also be provided with two Tivo boxes at no cost. 
The list goes on and will be made public soon.
 
I'm saddened  by the fact that some immediately conclude that conspiracy  is taking place to screw the homeowners. 
The entire board, the Tech committee, the consultant we used to help us through this process  and Tim reviewed and contributed  to the contract. To clarify there is no requirement for the owners or for the Board to approve the cable contract nor was this done in the past. Nonetheless, the Technology Committee, which was tasked by the Board to research the options( to include contacting communities regarding the experience with both providers). , the entire board but one and Tim as well as our consultant felt that the Blue Stream package was an outstanding option and should be seized upon within the 30 day window. There simply wasn't enough time to conduct all the final negotiations and review and try to get the owners involved. 
 
Please be patient and absorb all the facts before you speak.
I personally  feel we have done the right thing for the park.
 
Keep safe.

Dear Owners of Imperial Wilderness:

A lot of research and testimonials from Blue Stream customers has been done by our Technology Committee, so thank you committee members for your dedication and hard work.
As soon as the service agreement is fully executed, I will post it to our web site so everyone can see what we are getting. I know you will be as excited as I am about this transition. Have a great summer and stay safe.
