The Gloucester Planning Commission approved a list of recommendations about high-speed broadband internet service in the county during a meeting last Thursday night in the colonial courthouse.

The commission had been given until January 2011 to forward its recommendations to the Gloucester Board of Supervisors. If supervisors decide a broadband ordinance is needed, the matter will be sent back to the commission.

The commission had set up a broadband committee that has discussed the matter and the commission also discussed the matter at its regular meeting in early October.
