Community Open House #1

Introduction, Strengths and Challenges Validation, and Issues/Opportunities Mapping

When: Monday, November 21, 2022

Where: Territorial Elementary School

Purpose: The open house-style meeting was an opportunity to educate attendees on the general plan process. Participants were asked to validate or provide alternatives to information gathered earlier in the process, such as strengths and challenges and preliminary draft goals. A large format mapping exercise gave community members a chance to identify geographic assets and challenges and convey ideas for the town’s growth visually. Individual comments were submitted via comment cards or discussed with meeting facilitators. A community questionnaire was available in paper copy and is also available on the project website. Everyone was encouraged to ask questions, participate, and share their hopes and expectations for the process and the eventual outcome of Make It Chino! 2040 General Plan.
