Subject: R.20-09-001 Request for Extension - party poll
Importance: High

To the Parties of R.20-09-001:

CCTA plans to request under Rule 11.6 a one-week extension of time to file Opening Comments and a one-week extension to file Reply Comments on the Assigned Commissioner Ruling issued August 6, 2021, such that Opening Comments would be due September 3 and Reply Comments would be due September 21.

CCTA is seeking to ensure that there is adequate time to provide meaningful feedback to inform the CPUC staff report that will identify locations for California's $3.25 billion state open access middle-mile network. Specifically, more time is needed to evaluate the massive amounts of data underlying the proposed Anchor Build Fiber Highways and make recommendations to ensure the proposed network is built in a manner to benefit communities that need it most.  There have already been delays in evaluating this data as the various shapefile layers for the map have been requested from staff but not yet been made available to parties.

In addition, CCTA will seek an extension of time to file Reply Comments on the basis that, although Opening Comments have not yet been filed, a significant number are expected based on the high volume of comments received in earlier phases in this rulemaking and the magnitude of the $3.25 middle-mile investment.  Moreover, the Labor Day holiday falls within the current reply period.

This extension request, if granted, would still be far before the CPUC's deadline under Senate Bill 156 to "solicit and receive public comments" within 90 days of the bill's effective date of July 20, which is October 18.  Moreover, it is CCTA's view that this extension would not adversely affect any party.
Please let me know by 11 am Pacific time tomorrow, Wednesday August 18 whether you agree to this requested extension.
Thank you.
