The story of a Patumahoe Hill Community Lookout….

I was speaking to someone this week and after a while understood that I could not explain to them effectively the amount of work that goes into trying to inform and engage community even before a proposal is presented to community.

I decided to try and concisely track how just one project – a community-led design for the Patumahoe Hill Community Summit came into being.

While I have been involved in the Patumahoe Hill summit proposal, I have not been the primary driver and going through the process systematically have gained even more admiration for the amount and effort put in by Andrew Sinclair.

For those, like me, who are compulsive readers, there are 14 pages of timeline there. For skim readers, pick and choose. But remember, this does not include the detail of the number of documents, conversations emails, meetings, events or processes that have been undertaken to get to this point.

And, as always – feel free to comment at the end of this post.

And though I would love to pretend otherwise – any errors are my own, and please contact me if you have corrections or clarifications you wish to be made.
