The notes in red look familiar.

Reminder received yesterday:

This third workshop will cover the following topics:

  1. Quick review of the revised issues and opportunities, policies and goals as developed during the first and second workshops in Valdosta and Waycross, on September 21 and October 19, 2017.
  2. Review and discussion of the current Minimum Standards and Standards of Excellence as they were adopted for the current Regional Plan and comments for changes, additions or deletions.
  3. If time available we will start looking at the current Areas Requiring Special Attention.

A copy of the latest version of the Regional Plan Workbook is available for download on our website, and we will bring a few hard copies to the workshop. Unfortunately it is too large to attach to email.

We are hoping that you all will be able to come to bring and share your communities’ knowledge, experience and input to the new Regional Plan to make it truly regional and applicable to all. The following workshops in the three or four workshop series all will build upon each other, so we hope that you will be able to attend all. We will repeat the dates for all workshops at this next workshop or just email us for more information.

We are looking very much forward to seeing you on the 7th of December in Tifton, and please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
