Resident - During three events located at different libraries throughout Centennial, residents provided 63 ideas to the City. The workshops included a time for residents to individually come up with ideas based on the City's problem statements, and then, expand on their ideas with the "How would you do this differently" activity. This exercise urged participants to build on their original ideas by offering prompts that exaggerate the challenges and opportunities of aging. At the end of each session the facilitators opened up the floor for a discussion. During this time, new ideas emerged and existing ideas were expanded.
