Community for Us, By Us: July Meeting
The CfUBU group continued to move towards consensus in choosing a topic to take action on in their community at the June 28 meeting. Questions residents asked themselves to guide the process included:
- Can the proposed priority be impacted by a change to policy, system, or physical environment?
- Which identified priority has the most potential for impact, and is it achievable?
- Does the proposed priority unify us as a group/can we rally around the idea?
- Do we have community assets/resources to tap into to help address the issue?
- What is the potential ROI (return on investment)?
Here is the list of community priorities- not meant to be conclusive or finite- that residents came up with and voted on at the June 28 meeting.
