A: Regional Planning - Trust Equation (Half Day)

This session describes how state and federal grant programs will likely change to encourage and support regional and sub-regional planning efforts and the necessity for developing trust among regional and sub-regional planning partners. The session will also provide a framework of how trust is developed and allow the participants to explore how a series of trust-building “baby steps” can overcome generational or, deeply rooted distrust. Key features include understanding and articulating requirements and expectations plus recourse measures other than partnership dissolution.
