Consortium members, partner organizations and interested citizens will self-select into one or more Workgroups, organized around the Regional Plan Components listed below. Workgroups will focus on the specific topic areas and will form small cross-sector subgroups (with representation from multiple Workgroups) as needed to complete various tasks. This will ensure that we benefit from cross sector thinking and sound analysis of data and policy alternatives.
Most of the work will be done in each county and then be combined in the final GROWashington-Aroostook Regional Plan. Some work, for Workforce Development for instance, will be done for both counties at once.
