We’re drilling down on the topics that emerged from our Citizen Roundtables.
First discussed in the Citizen Roundtables, then tested through the ongoing Virtual Forums, we’ve identified a range of potential priorities to be further explored in online sessions we’re calling the Decatur 202s. These sessions are designed to allow competing priorities to be addressed, inspiring efforts to resolve conflicts and to build support for effective decision-making.
The overriding question for the process: What does successful policy-making for the next decade look like in a community of 25,000 in a metro area of six million?
