SATURDAY, JUNE 1 – 8:30 registration & coffee; 9-noon meeting
St Pius High School, 2674 Johnson Rd NE, Atlanta 30345

The May 22 meeting was a good beginning; on June 19 we dig deeper. We began to form a Vision of our “village”; a subgroup is coalescing the many visions into one Vision for review on June19. We will also review a summary of the SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats) exercise. Then participants, in small groups, will talk about how that Vision Statement breaks down into details, like what it means in terms of land use, transit, parks, etc. We’ll end with a “Road Map” to implementation of the Vision.

Please Come to this second meeting! Please tell your friends about it!

May 22 wrap-ups posted at SWOT exercise output summary & photos.

Sponsors: TABASCO Coalition (DECA & NBCA) & Commissioner Jeff Rader. Facilitator: Davis Fox.
