July 12 Presentation at Comprehensive Plan Committee Meeting

July 12 @6:30 pm. The New Gloucester Comprehensive Plan Update Committee has invited Jane Lafleur of JB Lafleur Consultants to attend its meeting on July 12 at 6:30 p.m. Jane will share information about the Orton Family Foundation’s Community Heart & Soul model, including an opportunity for the town to take advantage of  free technical assistance for outreach and engagement using the Heart & Soul model.

By actively seeking the collective wisdom of all residents, including those whose voices are often missing, Community Heart & Soul brings people together to build stronger, healthier, and more economically vibrant communities. This resident-driven model helps build trust while taking into account the unique character of a town and the deep emotional connection of the people who live there—a town’s “Heart & Soul.” These collective insights into what truly matters most guide a community in making the best decisions about its future. More information can be found on the foundation’s website at http://orton.org/.

Jane will also share information about other services she can offer to the town (for a fee) related to comprehensive planning.

Members of the public are encouraged to attend the committee meeting, which will include time for discussion.
