We hosted Opening Night on Thursday, January 23rd with over 600 attendees! Pre-registered Roundtable groups got to know each other, and we formed new ones with enthusiastic attendees who wanted to volunteer more of their time to discussing Decatur's future!
We made it through the first round of the Roundtables and uncovered some great ideas and some major concerns to consider for the future. The second round was almost complete in March 2020, and then the COVID-19 pandemic hit. We wanted to give people some time to re-calibrate to our new way of life before re-starting the Roundtable process. Round 2 finished in early September, with Round 3 close behind in mid- to late-September.
The Roundtables uncovered many important issues. The four issues with the most disagreement and concern will be addressed in a series of educational "Decatur 202s" with expert panelists and interactive discussions. See the Decatur 202s summary here.
We verified and affirmed what we heard through the Roundtables and Decatur 202s via quick online surveys and an ideas wall in our Virtual Forum.
Now that the Decatur202s are complete, we are drafting recommendations for your input. Stay tuned for more information and weekly releases of the activities through May!
