Over a three day period (April 30 – May 2) nearly 600 individuals participated in our Business As Usual Workshops. The sessions focused on a presentation of the Business As Usual Scenario, instant polling and a mapping exercise to engage attendees in a discussion about how the region should look going forward. You can access a video from our Akron Workshop here.
Below you will find some of the results from the first Workshop Series. We have included an overall summary of the workshop results, a closer look at how different development typologies were utilized during the mapping exercise and a library of all of the maps created by workshop attendees.
