On June 5, 2013, the Heart & Soul of Essex brought together our project partners to share the results of the Heart & Soul process so far, and to discuss ways to ensure that planning for the future incorporates the community’s values. Over sixty Essex leaders participated in a series of lively and productive discussions at the First Congregational Church.
Kayhl Cooper produced two videos for our meeting. The Essex Values Video presents the six top values that the community identified during the Neighborhood Conversations. The Essex Data Video provides an overview of what is happening in and around Essex that is affecting how we grow and change.
Please read the Neighborhood Conversations Report for detailed information on what we heard from the community.
We hope you enjoy and join us at our Community Action Summit on September 25th as we Move to Action!
