MGT of America is holding a series of charrettes, which are community input sessions, to hear citizens’ ideas and thoughts regarding Carroll County Public Schools facilities. The charrettes will provide a large group session discussion and then participants will break into smaller groups where they will work with a facilitator for further discussion. The remaining charrettes are scheduled as follows:
- Tuesday, Oct. 22 at 7 p.m. at Century High School auditorium.
- Wednesday, Oct. 23 at 7 p.m. at Westminster High School (auditorium)
For more information, please contact Carey Gaddis, Supervisor of Community and Media Relations, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 410-751-3020.
ICYDK (In case you didn't know): A charrette is a process where everyone in the community has an opportunity to submit ideas. It is based on a 19th century activity where the public was encouraged to comment on plans for public buildings. It was created out of the belief that the people could make significant contributions to the final plan – and they often did.
