WE'RE ALL ABOUT CIVILITY
A strong community is vibrant, resilient and thriving. It's a place that marshals its resources in imaginative ways, is open and inclusive, and finds innovative approaches to meet challenges and make new opportunities.
A strong sense of community is what makes a neighborhood, town or city vibrant, resilient and thriving. It's the shared appreciation of why the people in that community love where they live. It's the key ingredient for becoming and remaining a strong community.

Making New Connections - Bringing People Together
Community Plus cultivates a stronger community and sense of community in Sequim by fostering civility, civil discourse, and greater civic engagement. We believe that through broad, inclusive, conversations based on the principles of civility, we can help generate a shared understanding of who we are as a community and a shared vision of how we can make this place we love even better.
The City of Sequim is exploring a variety of ideas for making the city a better place for young people to thrive—to realize their full potential in a safe, supportive environment. This project will focus on planning and holding a “Sequim Youth Summit,” tentatively set for early to mid-February 2017.

Our “Conversations on Our Community,” address core themes and ideas about what makes Sequim special, what we share as a community, and the great potential that makes a bright future possible.
Through broader, more inclusive collaboration on workshops and projects, we help marshal resources more effectively, and advance ideas from talk to successful action.
Civil discourse can be lively, engaging, passionate—even widely divergent, strongly held views can be discussed reasonably. We embrace and encourage a positive, optimistic—yet realistic—perspective, and the exploration of issues with an eye to finding solutions, exploring opportunities, seeking creative, innovative approaches.
