Many thanks to everyone who was able to join for the third OurFerguson Community Workshop at the Community Center on December 17th. Despite the wintery weather we had a great group to share some hot cocoa, think about Ferguson’s future, and discuss strategies to bring that vision to life.
The session opened with a presentation by the planning team that reviewed the process to date, shared results from the Aspirations Survey, and laid out a strategic framework for the plan. The framework outlines 52 strategies in six thematic areas:
- Housing & Neighborhoods;
- Environment & Wellbeing;
- Transportation & Mobility;
- Jobs & Economy; and
Following the presentation, community members and the planning team took a deep dive on those strategies at six stations—one for each thematic area. Each station highlighted key findings from the analysis, community priorities established through prior workshops and other engagement, survey data, and summaries of each strategy. Discussion focused on how to refine those strategies: What is missing? What is most important? What would success look like?
