The Visioning and Goal Setting Phase continues the process of public outreach with the goal of answering a new question: “Where do we want to be?” Utilizing information about shared values obtained from the discovery workshops, this series allowed participants to discuss the trade-offs required in long-range planning ultimately resulting in the development of alternate futures in terms of population, employment and housing.
TOGETHER NORTH JERSEY traveled to locations around Northern New Jersey during the Fall of 2013. Click on the links below to see results from each of these events.
In total, by the end of Visioning Phase Outreach, TOGETHER NORTH JERSEY, with the help of community partners, received responses from over 1600 participants. A report on the final results can be found here.
