Thoughtful Growth in Action (TGIA) hosts this community-wide workshop to confirm Essex residents’ desire to move toward a shared vision, educate about current planning governance, and engage in a conversation about how people would like to see planning governance improved.  This 3rd Working Group meeting has the goals of determining preferred governance structure scenario(s), determining a prioritized set of ideas on how to improve community engagement, and evaluation of Working Group process.

TGIA is a continuation of Heart & Soul of Essex, a two-year project that engaged residents to identify shared values and a vision for the future of the community. Thoughtful Growth emerged from Heart & Soul as one of the community’s top six values, and TGIA is based on the Heart & Soul belief that the community wants to move toward a shared Essex vision that simultaneously honors and builds on the unique characteristics of the Village and the Town outside the Village.
