In this morning’sÂ gathering at the Civic Center participants tried to come up with strategies and targets for measuring progress toward achieving some of the 72 goals outlined at the original meeting.
Meeting facilitator George Packard clustered the goals into nine categories ranging from youth initiatives and employment to communication and “tracking reality.”
