Now that the plan is approved, we are launching four new community working groups to help us with implementation. These include:
Innovation - This group will work on developing creative solutions to tough problems and finding opportunities in the places we tend to overlook.
Policy and Legal - This group will work on policies for implementation at the local level, develop outreach strategies for policy engagement at the state level, and develop strategies for overcoming legal barriers to the strategies in the 100% Savannah plan.
Grants and Funding - This group will work on ways to fund the strategies in the 100% Savannah plan, including through federal grants, philanthropic funding, non-regressive tax proposals, bonding, and innovative forms of revenue generation.
Community Engagement - This group will work on ways to better engage the community about 100% Savannah and to foster connections with key institutional and community-based partners.
Interested citizens can reach out to Alicia Brown for more information. We welcome individuals of all backgrounds and levels of expertise. Meetings are expected to commence in July and continue quarterly thereafter.
