S.W.I.M. Coalition is gearing up to significantly increase our community outreach efforts this year and next year to inform and mobilize our member organizations and local community groups, and ensure robust public participation in the City’s water quality improvement plans.
We’ll have a kick off meeting in November, 2015, and host a series of community workshops throughout the city in the winter and spring of 2016 where we will provide fact sheets and discuss the details in each of the individual plans and proposals. Stay tuned for upcoming dates of our events!
Our goal is to organize local working groups composed of representatives from several community organizations who can ensure that community stakeholders are informed about the specific details of the plans and be present at every public meeting the City convenes.
