  Ralph and All,

  Many of us have been wondering the same thoughts about Council and Manager feedback.  Some research was done by Terri, who cites the following example.  Although perhaps a less complicated subject, these offer some guidance and templates for discussion:
    Here's an example of what we need to do with the Technology Plan -
    Plan submitted by Public Art Commission: http://townhall.townofchapelhill.org/agendas/ca050523/4i1-Chapel%20Hill%20Public%20Arts%20Commission%20Report%20and%20Recommendations%20on%202005-2006%20Annual%20Public%20Art%20Plan.htm  (Text rather than spreadsheet, linked to capital improvement plans--in other words integrated with other Town planning process, addresses interaction with other departments/boards, does not include all the detail that our plan has)

    Managers recommendation/resolution for adopting the plan: http://townhall.townofchapelhill.org/agendas/ca050523/4i2-Recommended%202005-06%20Public%20Art%20Plan.htm  (defines the details--such as the scope of the commission's input, budget, etc.)

  Thanks for feedback on the opening dialogue.  Keep 'em coming!

  Gregg

    Gregg,

    One area of concern I have had for sometime is that we rarely have any direct feedback from the Council regarding reactions to those things that have been proposed.  I would like to see some sort of mechanism put in place that documents the Council's reactions to our proposals so we have a better idea of how to proceed going forward.  We should have a collaborative relationship that aids both sides in doing what is best for our citizenry.

    Ralph

      Good Morning,

      The agenda for our regular meeting on Tuesday evening was posted on the Town's web site here. The text of the agenda is coped below, for your convenience. I understand that several other Council Members, including Mark Kleinschmidt, may also attend.  This promises to be a most informative meeting and I trust you will be able to attend (I know Brandon Perkins is away on business).

      As I mentioned in yesterday's preview message, I would like to know your thoughts on what you would like to learn from the Mayor and Manager in advance, as I prepare a brief introductory message. This is "listen and learn time" to help achieve our Committee's mission and purposes.
