Our next Community Commons is next Tuesday, November 15 from 7 to 9 pm. We hope you can join us.
Post-election many citizens are asking, how can we find common ground and work together? The Columbia Tribune’s “Community Commons” aims to help you do just that.
Discussion in September highlighted several issues related to the themes in our community dialogue guide “Are We An Us?” Looking at the themes of Inequity and Building Bridges, the October session explored a wide range of topics, including the need for more affordable housing, housing for the homeless, creating more economically diverse neighborhoods, bringing neighborhoods together through smaller celebrations and events, and providing more places where people can come together for dialogue.
Those interested in Citizen Centered Planning further explored the difference between “politicians and statesman”, and discussed the possibility of creating an easily accessible public dashboard that shows progress toward public infrastructure projects approved by voters.
Interested in exploring how we can bridge divides, address inequities, and put citizens at the center? Join us on November 15!
During this session we will also be introducing a new dialogue format called the “Conversation Cafe” that you can easily transfer to your conversations with family, friends, and neighbors. By talking and working together, we can make a difference
