Powerpoint presentation: ideas and options from the consulting team

This is a Powerpoint that the consulting team presented at the Oct. 6 Steering Committee meeting.

It summarizes the work group presentations from Sept. 21 and then presents some ideas and options primarily in the form of graphics and sketches. It was intended in part to help prep the committee for the upcoming Phase 2 workshops/sessions.

If you see something that excites you or alarms you, good!

Rest assured, the time for input has not passed so be sure to participate.
