Discussion Boards


Give Your Input Anytime Online

Ten Discussion Boards are up and running on the project portal at: https://lab2.future-iq.com/town-of-falmouth-vision-and-values-project/focus-groups/focus-group-discussion-boards/overview/. Now is the time for your thoughtful input as a community member. These discussion board topics directly correlate with the Focus Group sessions which start tomorrow and continue next week. Discussion Board topics include:

Join the Discussion!

Please join the conversation in the online Discussion Boards. Residents can review in-depth background information on the complexities of each Focus Group topic and provide their input and feedback on the subject. We have been delighted with the number of comments on the discussion boards so far. These conversations are a great opportunity to reflect upon these issues in the comfort of your own home, hear what your neighbors are thinking, and engage with them in a dialogue about issues that are important to you and the future of Falmouth.
