This fall, ten graduate and undergraduate students at the University of Florida are participating in an Urban and Regional Planning “Civic Engagement Studio” course led by Gail Easley. The students will hold public workshops and outreach events across Levy County, providing attendees with locally relevant information about coastal change and requesting their input for planning. For the students, they will gain valuable experience with community engagement techniques and learn about citizen concerns. The students are currently preparing to present to the Cedar Key Chamber of Commerce on September 27th, 6:00-8:00 PM, at the Cedar Key Library, 466 2nd Street. The general public is also encouraged to attend. Dates for all upcoming workshops and events will posted on our calendar. We hope you will join us!
