Introduction to Small Group "Talk Story" Sessions

Description of small group "Talk Story" sessions

Information about participating in small group "talk story" meetings about the Hāmākua community's values and vision

CDPs are designed to reflect community values, vision, and priorities.  Therefore, the County will work hard to involve community residents and others who have a stake in the region in every step of the planning process, particularly the beginning of the process when core community values and people's vision for the future of Hāmākua are established.  Those foundational values and vision will be identified through small group "talk story" meetings and from a survey. 

The goal of the talk story meetings is to create accessible forums for safe public participation so that all perspectives in the community are heard and recorded.  Talk story meetings involve between 5 and 15 people and typically last less than two hours.  Anyone can host a talk story meeting in their home, with a community group, or any other venue.  The County provides a facilitator and all of the necessary materials.

To make sure the diversity of Hāmākua residents are heard, the County will track participants' demographic information, identify gaps in participation, and reach out to people to fill those gaps.

For more information about small group talk story meetings, please see the "Talk Story" meeting FAQs.

People who are unable to attend one of the meetings are invited to complete the survey.
