Island Plan Workshop Will

Examine Social Environment

The Island Plan launches its social environment work group with a workshop on Wednesday, Jan. 23 at 7 p.m. at the Oak Bluffs senior center.

The work group will look at the human aspects of the Island, such as the characteristics of the population and community, social, health, educational and recreational services and culture.

Issues scheduled for exploration include: Is the continuity and diversity of the year-round community endangered and if so, why? Who is leaving and coming, and is there anything we want to or can do about it? Is the quality of life good for Islanders? Is it changing, and how can we improve it?
