Evan,Any update on the listening session? Number of people? Topics raised? Any information would be helpful.
It varies by month. The first month had the biggest turn out because it got coverage in the Flier. I am looking for ways to get the word out about when and where they are. I have been announcing them on this blog and at both CA Board meetings and KC Village meetings.
Evan,I know we have our differences, but I think your listening sessions could be a great tool for community feedback. It is in this light that I offer some constructive criticism.First off, let people know ahead of time. You have consistently publicized your listening sessions on this blog with only 3 or 4 days notice (and sometimes less). One full week would be more appropriate (with a midweek reminder).Secondly, announcing at CA Board of Directors meetings and KCVB meetings are good things, but we both know that many of these meetings are poorly attended. Keep on announcing, but do not think that those announcements are your primary means of getting the word out.
Evan,b.santos has made some good points, and I think it is your determination to continue that is most important. I admire this trait. See you at the next "Listening Session"
