About the Project

Coastside Conversations is a grass-roots effort born when Irma Mitton, Judy Taylor and Deborah Harter Williams realized how difficult it was to find out how policy decisions are made at the local, city, or county level, including the policies of public utilities, special districts, and other agencies operating on the Coast. The materials for Coastside Conversations will be created by experienced communications professionals who live and work on the Coastside with input from interviews and Coastsider feedback.

The project is funded solely though donations from individuals and local businesses, and has no political or partisan agenda. Anyone can access the materials, host a conversation, provide feedback, or suggest discussion topics.
