The Message Platform supports future Grand Boulevard Initiative outreach efforts, with the intent of empowering the Grand Boulevard Initiative’s Task Force, Working Committee, and Community Leaders Roundtable members with the tools and message strategies to engage in civic discourse with residents and the business community on how the El Camino Real Corridor communities can grow in a sustainable way.The Message Platform includes the following:
- Core Message and Master Narrative
- Jargon Toolkit – Words to Avoid
- Frequently Asked Questions and Answers
- One-Page Information Sheet (pictured to the right)
- PowerPoint presentation template
- Message Platform On-Demand Webinar Training
We encourage the Grand Boulevard Initiative Task Force, Working Committee, and Community Leaders Roundtable members to watch the Message Platform Webinar (below) to prepare for outreach opportunities. The purpose of the webinar is to aid participants in engaging in civic discourse with residents and the business community within their jurisdictions and to understand how to best use the Message Platform materials.
