These one-in-one conversations are a great way for us to learn about what matters most to community members. These are the questions that we use to frame our dialogue, they are open-ended and meant to structure the process. However, please discuss anything that you would like to. We are working to dig deep in our community and reach as many people as we possibly can. If you had a positive experience with this, please encourage other friends and family members to come speak with us as well. If you wish to remain anonymous we can still use your answers to the questions without your name or information included. Why do you stay, or what brought you to this community? How long have you lived here? What do you love about this community? Or, can you tell us something that happens here regularly, or something that has happened to you that reflects what is great, or what you love about this community? What things capture the spirit of this town? What would you miss in this community if it were no longer here? What if it were gone, would make this community not seem like this community anymore? What about this community is important to continue into the future? What would you change to make this community even better? If you had one wish for this community, what would it be?
