How Does RealityCheck2050 Work?

In the morning session over 400 diverse participants meet and work together in tables of ten people to develop a set of principles for where and how they think the region could grow. Through discussion and negotiation, they will place a variety of colored LEGO® blocks representing the projected housing and employment growth on a grid-covered map of the 14-county region. The 40 tables of individuals participating in the workshop get to grapple with challenges the region faces as it considers how growth will occur in the future. Following lunch and keynote speakers there will be a presentation on results from the morning exercise, discussion on the implications of growth patterns, and design issues & priorities. The afternoon session will also use real time polling techniques to receive immediate feedback from participants.
