Join us tomorrow evening for the Trib Talks forum “Are We An Us?’ The world-cafe style forum will be held at the ARC, 1701W. Ash St., at 7 pm. We will dig deeper into themes that emerged during our last session and our on-line forums.
What is citizen-centered planning? One thing it involves is leadership that accurately informs citizens. During our last forum citizens expressed a desire for the Trib to make it easier for them to track coverage on complex issues, like the current transmission line controversy. The Trib has responded with a new archive on infrastructure issues. Come and share additional thoughts on how our planning for growth might be improved.
There are many groups in Columbia working to address needs for food and shelter. Affordable housing, and outreach through efforts like Project Homeless Connect have been in the news. Bring your ideas on what more might be done.
And over the last month uniting the diverse elements of our community has been a theme of many events – from the the city-sponsored diversity breakfast, to a unity concert, to a multicultural cooking class sponsored by the Columbia Center for Urban Agriculture. Come and share your thoughts on how we might bridge our gaps.
Join us at the ARC and here on-line!
