The project Work Plan states: “The Kick-Off event will focus on being family-friendly while still oriented to the community as a whole. The goal will be to bring together the various groups that have been reached through the initial outreach phase as well as those that may not have been involved in those processes. Providing information will continue to be the focus, but this will mark the shift from the information phase of the engagement plan into a heavier focus on collecting input and feedback from the public.”
