Thoughtful Growth in Action Working Group (TGIA), continues the work of refining and integrating community ideas towards residents’ desire to move toward a shared planning governance, and planning governance improvement. This meeting's Goals are:  Review and discuss planning governance scenarios - Work towards agreement on a preferred governance scenario. - Discuss and confirm top community engagement challenges.

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.
