Common Ground Workshop on Economic Development

Held on October 14, 2023 at the Veterans Hall, Sonora, CA

Workshop Description

The Common Ground Workshop brings community members together for a deep dive into the issue of economic development. Together, participants talk about their connection to the issue and their opinion on solutions. 

We will start with presentations from at least two community members with different perspectives about what economic development means for Tuolumne County. Then, trained moderators will lead us through a series of exercises to share perspectives, examine questions related to the topic, and identify common concerns and alternatives for future actions.
The workshop’s desired outcome includes a combined list of values, concerns and policies that are unanimously accepted to become the Points of Agreement.

Workshop Goals

  • To delve into a single issue where citizens differ, and learn how each other sees the problem
  • To discover areas of common ground and points of agreement
  • To learn something that might be helpful to others in our community

Who Is This Workshop For?

This workshop is open to anyone interested in our County and its future.  It is time for us to have open conversations, to exercise disagreement in ways that make space for everyone’s ideas, and to explore new ways of looking at this subject that can offer paths to prosperity for all.
