In early 2016, County staff held community forums in seventeen locations around the county in order to gain as much community input as possible. More than 190 people participated and contributed data during these forums.
Using information gathered from the 2014 Elon Poll, staff developed three leading questions and seven discussion categories that were used during the community forums in order to inspire citizens to think about the present and future status of Alamance County.
Participants were given a guide containing the three main questions and seven categories for discussion during the forums. The facilitators (representatives from the UNC Strategic Leadership Initiative group, Staff Resource Group, and other volunteers) led the forums and collected the data that the community offered up. The raw data (comments from public), and a sorted and counted summary of the data, can be found here.
A map showing the locations of the forums (stars) and the residences of the participants (dots) can be found here.
Below is a chart listing the seventeen dates and corresponding locations of the forums. Click on an event below to see the flyer.
