Santa Clara County residents who wondered why a general plan update matters, or how a future high-speed rail line will impact their town had their questions answered at Greenbelt Alliance’s Changemaker Training. On December 10, a group gathered at the Gilroy Police Department to learn how to speak up for what’s important to them, to understand how decisions are made in their local government and to help their local government wrestle with these questions and more.
Attendees came out of the training with communication techniques, tools for engagement in the planning framework, a better understanding of how various agencies work both together and independently, and empowerment to effectively participate in city and county projects.
A variety of speakers led the conversation at the Changemaker Training. If you missed the day, click on the links below:
