I was hoping to get stories from people about kicking off a planning process, whether it be general planning, neighborhood planning, visioning sessions, etc..
First, how did you get notice out? Postings? Letters? postcards? flyers? How did you initially get the message out?
Second, how did you run your meetings? How did you run the initial meeting? Did you have later, more policy-oriented meetings? How many did you hold?
What about charettes?
What was your final product? A document? A map? At least a good conversation?
There's plenty of publications out there, and I've got my own experience, but I'd like stories from people on the ground!
