I participated in the conversation on Aug 1 in Roxbury and was very energized by the process. We had a chance to have a good conversation and share some interesting ideas. I also felt that many people in the room were activated and ready to engage. I hope that the next steps in the process will honor that energy and will continue to provide avenues to harness our input and efforts. I know that it will not be possible to act on every suggestion, but I hope it will be possible to respond to most of them or show how they are incorporated in final plans or tabled for future consideration.
