Capital Region Collaborative
is building a framework for regional collaboration.
The CRC is not another top-down visioning exercise, but rather, a grassroots-driven process to identify regional priorities and provide a platform for discussion and solutions to our regions most pressing issues. It is a cross-sector, cross-jurisdictional collaboration of minds and resources.
The region spoke. We listened.
We started by asking residents to share their thoughts on the aspirations and priorities for our regional community. Through a series of 10 focus groups, 85 public community conversations, a telephone survey, and an online survey, more than 8,000 voices came together and identified seven priorities for the region.
We Built the Framework
In 2012, we released a report of our findings. Then, we formed Work Groups of local citizens, community leaders, and subject matter experts for each of the seven priority areas identified. They dove in and throughout 2013, they reported back with specific ways that the collaborative efforts of the community, business sector, and government agencies could make a difference in each area.
NOW we need you!
