‘Building Bridges’ community forum
With the diverse groups of people and jurisdictions that exist in northern Arizona, even the simplest issues can get tangled up in governmental red tape. In many instances, federal, state, county, city and tribal governments may all be involved in local issues at the same time. On Thursday, May 22, Deb Hill, Chair of the Coconino County Board of Supervisors, is sponsoring a town hall-style event, “Building Bridges,” to brainstorm new approaches and to identify specific policies and procedures that block the ability to work together. The session will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Hart Prairie Lodge at the Arizona Snowbowl, off N. Highway 180. Building Bridges offers a unique opportunity for concerned leaders to take part in a structured, wide-ranging analysis of local issues. For more information, call Hill’s office at 928-779-6764.
