City Council Planning Retreat

City Council Planning Retreat

Client: City of Blaine, WA

Case Study: The Blaine, WA City Council held a planning retreat with facilitator, David Roberts focused on enhancing community communication and engagement and establishing priorities for the coming year. It was informed by a presentation on effective approaches to social media engagement by project partner and strategic communications firm, Shew Design.

Impact: This strategic facilitation helped the Council to identify priorities for city engagement using a hybrid group decision model followed by an identification of tasks and priorities. The facilitation opened up sharing and ideas and established common goals and Council priorities.

“The City of Blaine appreciates the meeting facilitation services David Roberts from Peak provided at the City Council’s retreat. Facilitation was through, thoughtful, and helpful in determining priorities for the upcoming year.  Facilitation included interviews with each Council member beforehand which built rapport and provided a foundation from which to establish common goals and Council priorities. The retreat was well organized, respectful to everyone’s time, and enjoyable.  I would recommend Peak and David Roberts for facilitation needs and retreats.” David Wilbrecht, City of Blaine, City Manager
