CONCLUDING COMMENTS ON THE BERKELEY AND MADISON EXPERIENCE

This presentation briefly eneumerates some of the lessons learned from the Berkeley and Madison experiences. Discuss the concept with community leaders and local media representatives good at communicating potentially controversial ideas on a one to one basis before holding larger meetings to avoid public misurderstandings. Have a good ombudsman or "ligtning rod person" to answer citizens' questions. Be open to making changes in a concept as a result of feedback from the community. In addition to the usual citizen participation and transportation literature, policy analysis journals have had articles on Washington based health, education and housing projects which flounder on the local level which would be useful.
