Since then, Scripps and her team have conducted "meetings, webinars, focus groups, interviews, surveys, mapping exercises, national research on peer cities," and now, she says, "what I think we have is a good plan for the next seven to 10 years."Any such undertaking produces unexpected discoveries.
