Thank you

We sincerely thank everyone who came out, wrote in, or completed a survey. Without your voices we wouldn’t have such a powerful and exciting direction for the future. 

Thank you also to the many people who worked behind the scenes to facilitate the planning process, in particular our Steering Committee who put in many planning days helping to develop the framework.
