At the meetings, Chatham County departments will be represented to provide updates on projects specific to each district as well as an array of partners in regards to services and support for residents.  The conversation agenda will include a status report on progress and challenges regarding the recommendations of the Blueprint.  Participants will evaluate the Blueprint goals, review the indicators and make recommendations on priorities for the future work plan.  Residents and stakeholders are encouraged to attend at least one of the community conversations.

Coastal Georgia Indicators Coalition (CGIC) was awarded a contract with the Chatham County Board of Commissioners in 2014 to develop a community-wide plan known as the Chatham Community Blueprint.  The Blueprint was created through intense community engagement and prioritization that included citizen input at all levels.  In December 2015, the Blueprint was presented to the Board of Commissioners. The Blueprint integrated other concurrent planning processes from various partner organizations. Most importantly, the Blueprint aims to provide residents with an opportunity to be engaged and have a voice in their community.
