Pemberton Public Engagement
With 174 participants attending the event held in Pemberton, we had our hands full but our engagement process proved successful. It was able to accommodate the numbers and gather input through a number of mechanisms. The use of large posters, coloured notes and dots for ranking the concepts made the evening event open and transparent: everyone was able to see the posted results as they went up, even from across the room. So while the format didn’t provide the opportunity for people to vocalize their views for all to hear, it did allow views to be clearly displayed for all to see.
