You helped to give shape—and your voice—to our efforts.
Dear Megan ,
Thank you for sharing your perspectives and voices for the Let’s Be Shore project.
The hours you spent recording your audio and video interviews are much appreciated. Your voices are key content for the overall program and will be what spurs the greater public to engage with the process and participate by sharing their own voices in response to your viewpoints.
As we are about to launch the public forum phase of Let’s Be Shore, I wanted to give you first glance at Letsbeshore.org, our virtual platform for discussing opinions and ideas of how land use and agriculture practices affect water quality.
I invite you to connect with us online, leave comments, and share in the discussion:
  • View video portraits highlighting your neighbors’ opinions. Respond, if you wish, by entering a comment. We want to spur discussion.
  • Review audio interview quotes and respond to resident’s comments
Thank you again for adding your voice to the discussion. Please join us in every phase of this project.  Sharing Stations are traveling now and look to your inbox for news about public dialogue events in late summer.
