Keep the Conversation Going: New PlanET Input Tools Launched


Posted 12/01/2011

Not able to attend the first round of PlanET Regional Forums? No problem! You have more than one opportunity to submit your ideas.

We know community meetings can’t fit everyone’s schedule, so throughout the PlanET process, you can expect us to provide more than one way for you to make sure your ideas are heard.

PlanET has launched a virtual town-hall allowing the discussion that occurred at the forums to continue online. This virtual town-hall, called MindMixer, will allow users to respond to the same questions discussed in the first round of forums. Users are able to submit comments, view and comment on others’ responses, and vote on ideas. Feedback via MindMixer and the community forums are a critical part of the process. PlanET will use MindMixer along with a number of other methods to ensure that input properly represents our diverse region.

Another tool designed to create more opportunities to participate in PlanET is called Meeting in a Box. Meeting in a Box is designed for use with small groups who could not attend the regional forum meetings, allowing PlanET team members or community volunteers to work with citizen groups at their convenience. Meeting in a Box parallels each forum, and asks the same questions.

A Meeting in a Box “kit” contains instruction sheets for the host/facilitator, sample meeting invitations, discussion questions, worksheets for participant responses, feedback questionnaires, and directions for recording and returning responses.
