Mobile Dialogue

moves us toward the future.

The Mobile Dialogue was created with the understanding that a city prospers when citizens share a sense of

ownership and responsibility for its future,

when their important role in its development

is recognized and validated.

It is not only the right but also the duty of citizens in a democracy to stay informed and express their views. Without a full spectrum of public opinion, we can't move forward with a unified voice.  

The more we know about the past,

the more we know about each other.

Understanding the patterns that led us to where we are

builds a stronger commitment to the community and its future.
