  1. OK, now that I’ve figured out how to comment, I will.

    A good presentation last week, and really good questions asked in the followup. A couple of points I found interesting:

    – Members of the construction committee are going to be expected to stay on throughout the process – thus, particularly for the middle and high school ones, there’s another reason to reach out to the feeder schools for the non-school council members – you’ll want to still have people engaged with the school three years down the line.
    – The construction committees need to follow open meeting rules – which means that, if there’s likely an audience (should be for the high schools), they need to anticipate on meeting space. Of course, if they do a good job at this early on, they should need smaller rooms later on in the process.

    This really makes sense, given that the CAC’s are fundamentally a stakeholder communications management tool – they are there to feed info from the planning department to the parents and community, and also collect and represent feedback; they will want as a big a forum as possible, in order to make the communications as effective as possible.
