Question one ( 3 pages answer )

Your City Manager is a strong believer in Civic Engagement. She feels the public needs to be part of this dialogue. However, not everyone on this committee is comfortable with the prospect of involving the public. Your City Manager has asked you to make a five minute presentation to the Committee on the importance of Civic Engagement in the creation of this long term plan. In as few pages as possible, describe what elements you would include in your presentation. Why is Civic Engagement important? (Remember your audience!)
Question four ( 3pages )
