Community Issues Forum
This forum explores what it means to be a community and seeks to help us define what we have now, what we’d like to have in the future, and what it will take to help us move forward to our shared vision. Community Issues Forums offers you an opportunity to contribute to that imagined future. If community is created by community what are our interests? What are our issues? What kind of community do we have? What kind of community do we like? What contributes to our interests? What could contribute?
