Taking the time to attend a public meeting is a big commitment, so PlanET offers two new and creative tools that bring input opportunities directly to you. Those opportunties are provided where you already gather as a community and through an online resource.
Meeting in Box
For civic groups, neighborhood associations, churches, or any other group, Meeting in a Box can be used to hold your own town-hall session to discuss what you want East Tennessee to be like in the future. The Meeting in a Box kit includes instructions, invitations, and worksheets, all of which can be downloaded from the PlanET website. If you need help getting started, contact Sherith Colverson, PlanET Outreach Coordinator, at email@example.com for more information or to arrange for a facilitator to assist you in running your meeting.
If you prefer the online experience, then sign up to participate in MindMixer, an online town hall. You’ll answer the same questions that were asked at the forums, and you can interact with other online participants by commenting and voting on each others’ ideas. Get started by going to engage.planeasttn.org.
