In case you forgot, the Summit was originally by invitation only from a Trustee or Mayor. After outrage, citizens were allowed to attend but their concerns were kept separate.
This is a link to the report Lyle Sumek was paid to produce after the meeting, I hear it was rewritten many times to not reveal too much: https://blnnewsdotcom.files.wordpress.com/2020/05/citizen-summit-report-2019-2020.pdf
The report is a list of questions and how each “team” responded to the question. It’s pretty easy to tell the “invitees” from regular citizens.
Communication was big theme. Lots of comments about Trustees listening to the people more and information being presented before decisions are already made. (Don’t the current Trustees get upset with Stan for talking to people?)
I suggest you review the documentation, then ask the Trustees why little of what was reported mattered. The Summit was in 2019. Must be too early to see action.
Notice while reading some listed responses are so vague they don’t say anything.
