The Livable City (or Sustainable City) Forums
These grass-roots forums provide Fall River residents with an opportunity to envision what they wish their city to become during the next half-century. Average citizens are able to discuss pertinent issues, shaping the future of their hometown. Many of the suggestions and ideas generated by these forums have come to fruition or are in the process of being realized.
