September 2010 Forum Round-Up
“Thank you for initiating this conversation, it’s so important. We are here to do what we can to help our city and community.” - Comments from Detroit Works Project Forums
For those who wondered if people would come…they came. To the tune of 4,500 in just five meetings. In September 2010, the Detroit Works Project kicked off with five community forums around the city, to engage Detroiters in a conversation about what our future could be. Like democracy itself, the meetings were at times inspirational, at times challenging, and at times thought provoking. The one thing they all had in common is that people cared. They cared about their neighbors, their city, and about what comes next.
“When citizens are a part of the process it gives them the satisfaction of being a part of the big picture. Continue to allow us to be involved, let us know what we can do to help.” - Comments from Detroit Works Project Forums
Below is a snap-shot of what we heard. People had thoughts on everything from services to land use to jobs to green practices, and much, much more. And, there really was no single overwhelming view beyond our need to get better and our opportunity to be great again.
Reaching Out – Here are some stats on how we gathered people, and how many we heard from in just a few short weeks:
Many of you wanted to talk about the city….today, with most of those comments centered on city services. We’ve already begun reaching out individually to people on specific issues that were raised and will continue to do so:
If you have a service request, please contact the City of Detroit’s 311 call center.
People also wanted to talk about the future and had some great ideas for moving the city forward:
You, citizens, are a critical part of the process and it’s only natural that you had some questions about that process. Below are some of the things we heard:
You want to learn more about the Advisory Task Force.
You’re looking for smaller meetings in your neighborhoods and with established community groups based on the issues you care about most: neighborhoods, the economy, transportation, open space and public services.
Most importantly, we want you to keep participating, keep sending us email, keep giving us your ideas. We are taking all that we learned from you at the community forums and integrating your thoughts into the next round of meetings. Those sessions, shaped by your feedback will include a series of over 40 small-sized meetings, beginning in late November 2010 and running through February 2011. Learn how you can get involved.
We encourage you to stay engaged as we move through the next phase of the important, exciting and much –needed work. We cannot accomplish this work without you; we look forward to your continued involvement.
