1) Update the area code change options. The attendees reviewed four area code change options, which included three versions of an area code split and one area code overlay.
2) Reach consensus in the telecommunications industry on which area code change options it will present to the public and the PUC. The telecommunications industry decided to present the area code overlay (Overlay) and two of the three types of area code splits (Split Alternative #1 and Split Alternative #4).
3) Allow for the telecommunications industry to recommend an implementation schedule for both an area code split and an area code overlay. The telecommunications industry recommended a 15-month time frame for an area code split and a 13-month timeframe for an area code overlay.
4) Determine the number of local jurisdiction and public meetings to hold and the possible cities in which to hold them. These local jurisdiction and public meetings will allow those affected by an area code change to voice their concerns and opinions and to be informed of the area code change. The telecommunications industry and PUC staff agreed to hold two local jurisdiction and four public meetings. For locations, dates, and times of these local jurisdiction and public meetings, visit 760 Area Code Change Public Meetings. :
