Breaking the Complaint Cycle: Municipal Planning and Community Engagement

Overview
Locations

Are you a municipal official, municipal staff member, or community organization representative who is looking for constructive ways to break the complaint cycle? Then the free “Breaking the Complaint Cycle: Municipal Planning and Community Engagement” workshop on June 20 from 8 to 10 am at the Cumberland County Historical Society, Todd Hall (21 N. Pitt St., Carlisle) is for you!

The Greater Carlisle Heart & Soul Project, the Cumberland County Historical Society, and the Cumberland Conservation Collaborative have partnered together to provide ways of engagement that break the complaint cycle and positively connect community members and organizations to the municipal planning process. The focus will be to show the importance of public input early in the planning process for economic development and redevelopment projects.

Panelists from the region, including those from planning firms, municipal planning agencies, and state government, will share lessons learned and strategies to benefit your community and make the planning process more efficient.

The Greater Carlisle Heart & Soul Project was formed in 2015 as a resident-driven approach to community planning and development, through grants from the Pennsylvania Humanities Council (PHC) and the South Mountain Partnership mini-grant program. Heart & Soul engages people from all segments of the community to share stories about what makes the Greater Carlisle region so special.
