Keene Voices

A series of public workshops titled Keene Voices was structured around six community-vision focus areas. Each workshop began with an overview of identified issues and opportunities as they related to the focus area. Participants then broke into small groups to discuss and identify ways that the community and city could begin to achieve the identified goals. These directed discussions tapped the knowledge base and energy of community leaders, stakeholders and citizens. The resulting dialogue helped reveal consensus and generate synergy. Information from these workshops was then used to craft the plan’s goals, objectives and actions, and to help shape the topics of the practitioner workshops
