Build One Portsmouth would like to send a big thanks to everyone who participated in the Community Visioning Open House last week!
At the Open House, attendees participated in three activities. First, they learned about the factors shaping our community and provided comments on the Trends and Forces Report. Next, participants commented on the draft values and vision statements and voted for the ones they felt best encompassed their desires for the future. People spent a long time writing about and discussing their ideas. Finally, they provided comments on a map of the potential target areas for the new plan. Take a look at the gallery of photos below to see your fellow citizens in action.
Did you miss the Open House, or do you know someone who would like to give their input? Not to worry – you can still contribute your ideas online.
