Where Civics & Civility Meet
Rarely are any of these challenges best addressed by all-or-nothing approaches, but instead through creative solutions or thoughtful blending of approaches.
Why Civitas and why now?
Every community small or large faces critical challenges whether they be contending with homeless populations, providing quality public education, addressing growing traffic/congestion or incorporating on-going new development.
In a time when we need to invest more time having thoughtful conservations to develop creative solutions that we can all support, too many have run to the safety of what they know and limited engagement with people who think differently. There is too much at stake if we fall into this trap, so a group of passionate and diverse community leaders have come together to create a unique space where civically-minded people can come together in an informal environment to develop more complete perspectives and spin-out meaningful new collaborative efforts.
Civitas: noun, plural civ·i·ta·tes.
the body of citizens who constitute a state, especially a city-state, commonwealth, or the like
1. citizenship, especially as imparting shared responsibility, a common purpose, and sense of community.
