Imagine Greater Tucson Community Conversation

posted Monday, October 25, 2010        


TUCSON, Ariz. (Oct. 22, 2010) – Imagine Greater Tucson will host its first public Community Conversation on Wednesday, Oct. 27, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Resource Room  at the Sentinel Building at 310 N. Commerce Park Loop. Seating is limited to 36 participants. People are encouraged to RSVP at or (520) 209-2448.

Additional public Community Conversations are planned or pending in the surrounding communities of Marana, Oro Valley, Sahuarita, Green Valley and Vail as well as additional conversations throughout greater Tucson. (See list below for details.) Details will be posted at Future Conversations in Spanish also will be scheduled.

Imagine Greater Tucson is a grassroots effort to define a publicly supported vision and clear action plan to shape the region’s future. The collaborative effort will engage people from business, government, neighborhoods, nonprofits, education and others interested in joining the effort through additional Community Conversations.

‘We invite people to attend the various Community Conversations to help us determine our path to a vibrant and healthy place for all of us to live, work and play today and into the future,” said Imagine Greater Tucson Director Eileen Fagan.

The Community Conversations will be facilitated by trained IGT teams and will determine what participants value about the greater Tucson region and discuss what changes people would like to see that would help define a better future for all of us.

The information collected as part of the conversations will be used to identify shared values that will be the basis for building alternative scenarios to help address future challenges. The public will be involved in selecting a preferred scenario from which action-oriented strategies will be developed.
