  • Formulation of the different plausible scenario ‘spaces’ and development of detailed narratives and descriptions of each scenario
  • Identification of the preferred future and critical actions steps to achieve the preferred future
  • Potential action steps moving forward

The scenarios from the Think Tank will be presented within extensive community engagement sessions which will be held April 7, 8, and 9, 2019. Further community engagement sessions will be held April 25, 26 and 17, 2019. The citizens of Mitchell are invited to attend these community engagement sessions.
