during challenging times, how can people get involved in making tough community choices?

Hard economic times brought controversial choices into community budget decisions. As civic tempers flared around school closings and other cutbacks, SOLID designed and produced Get Real, an engagement process and brand experience that brought over 75 small groups of residents across the community together in discussions about values and priorities that were important to guide public budget decisions.  The results were given to elected officials to support decision-making and tough budget choices.
