Draft 1590 Business Plan Feedback Process

  2. Accepting comments via the HART email (see below)
  3. Accepting comments provided through other channels.

The Human Services Department has engaged a facilitator to lead the feedback sessions as well as a documenter who is compiling the comments and organizing them thematically into a report which will be prepared by the end of September 2022.  The report will be incorporated as an attachment to the final draft of the Business Plan. A narrative regarding how the themes are being addressed in the final draft Plan along with an explanation of the rational will also be provided. The final draft Plan will be presented to Council at a meeting or meetings determined by the County Council in fall 2022.
