Below is a letter and photos we received from Zach Dripps of the Michiana Area Council of Governments (MACOG) – a regional planning organization in South Bend, Indiana USA.
I want to thank you for getting me a set of Feedback Frames last month. We are getting a lot of good input and comments on the activity. It was a good way to get people’s limited attention at an event.
We are working with the Town of Winona Lake to create their first Comprehensive Plan.
We had approximately 65 individual participants at 2 separate events. The objective was to understand the public opinion on different statements regarding the values and vision for Winona Lake.
We crafted 10 statements and asked if they agreed or disagreed with them.
Additionally, each of the events we were attending was held in the Winona Lake, but also attracted additional individuals from surrounding communities. We wanted to be able to capture their opinions as well, but distinguish them from the residents so we asked them to self-identify where they are from by choosing one of three colours tokens. I feel this was fairly effective but did need some explanation.
