It’s just in the formative stages, but it’s been conceived with the idea of creating of forum for civil discourse outside of the formal and frequently contentious arena of governmental hearings.

Collaborative Governance gives all parties with a stake in a public problem a say in how to resolve it.

What if, as a citizen, you were invited to a meeting and found yourself, not in an impersonal hearing room but at a conference table where work gets done.

Imagine the state official who called you together says that, instead of the government creating a plan that only some could live with, it is instead up to you. As a group you’re to hammer out a solution. That’s collaborative governance, and it feels much different from simply "listening to the public."
