Massachusetts League members have been invited to participate in a survey, conducted under the direction of the Massachusetts Office of Public Collaboration (MOPC), designed to solicit feedback on proposed solutions to the problem of destructive public conflict in our local communities. This survey is part of a study to develop state policies and programming to deal with such conflict.
On-going public conflict over social issues can have damaging consequences for both local governments and communities. In the FY 2015 state budget, the MA Legislature commissioned the MA Office of Public Collaboration at the University of Massachusetts Boston to study conflict resolution needs of MA municipalities. The recommendations from the Interim Report of the Study have now been refined and prioritized by a committee composed of municipal officials and experts.
This survey seeks public feedback on these recommended solutions which are being developed for inclusion in the Final Report to be filed with the Legislature in December. By completing this survey, you will contribute to the various approaches to dealing with destructive public conflict in Massachusetts! Participation in this survey will take about 10 minutes.
