The project kickoff meeting was intended to orient the RDA to the scope of work and anticipated project schedule. The project team provided draft materials of what has been completed to date, including the creation of the project binder, drafting a Project Leadership Group and stakeholder list, and developing a Communications and Engagement Plan. A full report of the meeting can be found in the linked Meeting Summary document.
The project team will share updates related to the social media campaign and project website. The RDA board will preview the preliminary findings for the data collection that had been occurring throughout December. This may include reviewing base maps and data related to industry and workforce, demographics, and revenue sourcing. Additionally, the project team may ask the RDA board members to review the questions that have been prepared for the stakeholder interviews.
The project team will share what they heard during the stakeholder interviews and provide more information on the findings for the baseline assessment. During this meeting, there will be a Planning Status Workshop. This meeting is anticipated to be more interactive as we work to complete an asset map and start to review the status of previous and current planning efforts.
The RDA board will be provided formal documentation of the region’s needs, including the assets and challenges that could either support or interrupt economic development. The project team will also be prepared to outline the agenda and presentation materials for the “Where are we Going?” public meeting, as well as the questions that will be integrated as a part of the online survey.
Project Leadership Group Meeting #1
On March 1, 2019, the Project Leadership Group will meet to review the preliminary findings of the project.
The month of March is when the plan development will really start to take off. Therefore, this meeting will be a preview of the work that has been completed over the last month and a discussion about what to expect next. If there are any outstanding issues or concerns or unanswered questions that were discovered during the beginning stages of plan development, this will be the time to discuss it.
Project Leadership Group Meeting #2
