“I want to thank Cox Communications for all their hard work on this important broadband project and the opportunities this new high speed internet service will bring to Black Canyon City.  Their donation to the local food bank is just one more way this partnership is benefiting the local residents, and I appreciate this thoughtful contribution,” said James Gregory, Chairman of the Yavapai Board of Supervisors.

“Our employees are not only excited to bring Cox services to the residents of Black Canyon City, but we also want to help support the community overall and are proud to partner with Foothills Food Bank & Resource Center-Black Canyon City Community Pantry in their important work,” said Susan Anable, Cox Market Vice President.  “Cox is thrilled that we are creating new opportunities for connection in Black Canyon City through internet and telecom services, in addition to supporting the community.”

The Foothills Food Bank & Resource Center, which operates the Black Canyon City Community Pantry, supports more than 900 local families with food and support.  One in five people within the Pantry’s service area are food insecure and may not know where their next meal will come from – or the one after that. Many have limited access to fresh foods such as fruits, vegetables and dairy and without reliable transportation, healthy options are often limited or simply unavailable. 

Cox projects service availability in Black Canyon City by mid-2024 with construction beginning in the near future.  The approved agreement with Cox includes an investment of $3.8 million from Yavapai County’s ARPA funds along with an investment of more than $10.5 million from Cox Communications.  This agreement will allow for the expansion of more than 100 miles of fiber to Black Canyon City and Congress by Cox to serve these underserved areas of Yavapai County. 

Cox has begun engineering, construction design and necessary permitting for its fiber-based network and will be working with state and federal land management agencies, as well as county and local agencies to obtain necessary approvals.  Black Canyon City residents will soon see work commencing in their community and can visit https://www.cox.com/getfiber to express interest in Cox services.  For more information on the construction process in Black Canyon City, please visit: https://ycesa.com/yavapai-county-broadband-initiative/  and go to “documents”.
