The Traverse City Downtown Development Authority (DDA), in collaboration with the City of Traverse City and the Traverse City Police Department, has hired a consultant team to develop a strategic plan to identify a desired vision for Traverse City's drinking culture and develop immediate, short-term, and long-term action step recommendations to achieve that vision. The purpose of this facilitated listening session is to learn more about your personal experiences and your desired ideal future experiences related to the drinking culture, to understand your hopes and expectations of others, and to hear about the role you'd like to play and the resources you need. Megan Motil of Parallel Solutions will lead the session. The thoughts and ideas you share will help inform the strategic plan and proposed action steps. Thank you for signing up to participate, and for engaging in this process.
