It’s time to come back together to review the progress we’ve made on our Comprehensive Plan. The next round of public engagement for Build One Portsmouth will be the Shaping the Future Summit, to be held on September 30th.
The Summit schedule will offer two different ways to learn about our progress and give your feedback on the plan so far. You can attend the open house, the workshop, or both to learn more about the plan’s goals and share your ideas for what the city should do to achieve our goals.
Breakfast and Opening (8:30am – 9:00am)
The day will kick off at 8:30am with a complimentary continental breakfast and opening remarks from members of the planning team.
Option 1: Open House (8:30am – 12:00pm)
The Open House will be open all morning and allows you to drop in at any time to review the boards and provide your feedback at your own pace. Boards will contain information on the draft vision, goals and strategies for the plan. Kick off the day with us at 8:30 to enjoy breakfast, or any time during the day that is convenient for you.
Option 2: Workshop (9:00am – 11:00am)
If you want a more in-depth opportunity to participate, come to the Workshop immediately following breakfast. In this two hour session, the planning team will present the draft vision and goals, along with information on the major topic areas of the plan. Participants will use electronic polling to rate their agreement with the draft goals. Then, working in small groups with other Portsmouth residents, participants will share their ideas on what concrete actions should be taken in order to achieve those goals.
Following the Workshop you can also stop by the Open House to review additional information and speak with members of the planning team.
