Momentum Team

  • What is the process?
    This is an organic process that is self informing; what this means is that it is very fluid and flexible and as new data comes to light we adapt. Information on the process plan can be found on our website www.midcitycan.org.

  • What's the plan? Or, where's the plan for the next ten years?
    There is no plan. YOU are the plan... we are building it together and hope to have it done by Feb. 2010. You can find the latest documents on our website www.midcitycan.org.

  • When do we meet and how do meet other teams?
    You decide when to meet and how often. These are all public meetings and anyone can come. If you anticipate special logistical issues let me know at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

  • Is this for money?
    This is for the community.

  • What about the grants?

  • What kind of resources are there to help us?
    There are some resources to support resident involvement. However, this is not a free-ride... as with all momentum teams and collaborations, organizations and community leaders must leverage their own resources, expertise, and funds to make it work.

  • Can the House Meeting Leaders conduct a survey, outreach materials, or help with research for my organization?
    Although house meetings have come to a close, House Meeting Leaders continue to be highly engaged and active in the Building Healthy Communities (BHC) Initiative and they are not available to disseminate surveys, outreach materials, or to conduct research. As of today they have completed 100 house meetings with over 820 participants.

  • How can my organization best participate in the planning process?
    The best way for an organization to participate in the Building Healthy Communities (BHC) Planning Process is to attend a momentum team. Organizations are encouraged to consider participating in only one team and to consider who the best person might be to participate in logic modeling.
