Build One Portsmouth would like to send a big thanks to everyone who participated in the Shaping the Future Summit on Saturday, September 30! Check out some photos from the workshop above.

Over 30 people attended the Summit to participate in the workshop or open house. At the workshop, participants rated draft goal statements that support the vision statement for the Portsmouth Comprehensive Plan. Then, participants worked in small groups to discuss their ideas for specific actions that the City should take to achieve those goals. Altogether the group generated 65 ideas for concrete programs, policies or projects that could be undertaken. Finally, the groups identified their top four favorite ideas and talked through more details about how to put their ideas into action.
