The meeting convened at 2:04.


Presentation of I-80 CSMP study background

Perry provided a brief review for attendees that reviewed the formulation of the working groups based on the original work many of the attendees performed in 2012. The group was provided with an overview of how the working group would coordinate with broader corridor stakeholders through the study task forces including the implications of liveability.


Brainstorm ground rules for how to best engage in conference calls

Perry reviewed the fundamental elements of dialogue that allow group members interact in way that foster creativity and innovation. Group members added that muting phones reduced background noise and announcing who is speaking were important. Further, it was noted that the sound of “crickets” was uncomfortable and we should strive to reduce as much as possible periods of silence.


Review the stakeholder primer that establishes how to use the web site and RSS feeds (presentation/discussion)

Most attendees were unfamiliar with RSS reader functionality and being able to “pull” information from their favourite internet sources. Perry provided a brief summary of the usefulness of RSS readers and said he would provide group members a overview document so they could establish their own RSS feeder accounts.


Next steps including identification of additional working group members

Attendees were queried about additional recruitment for the group’s dialogue. Three additional members were identified with the understanding that other potential group members would be represented within the larger study task forces.



The meeting adjourned at 2: 53pm PCST/3::53pm MST.
