Scenario planning allows citizens to put Regional Values into concrete terms in helping decide where to make investments and what strategies we should pursue to get us closer to our shared Regional Vision and Values.
In a series of highly interactive, hands-on workshops, One Region Forward asked participants to work together mapping their future approach to land use, development, housing and transportation for our region.
A Week of Workshops took place November 12-16th across the region.
For those that were not able to attend one of our Community Congress events, we are offering citizens and organizations the opportunity to bring the Scenario Planning Workshops to their community through mid-March, 2014.
