If we want better decisions from our elected leaders, then it may help to identify the process being used and then work together to improve upon it.
I adapted the process used by the military and by many U.S. defense agencies. For instance, the new Septic Ordinance represents a “solution” – how was the problem defined? What were the other alternatives considered? What facts and data were used to justify the solution? How will we know if the change will make things better or worse? What are the risks?
This framework may also be important when the Courthouse options are discussed. I also provide an example of the process applied to the Maple Leaf project.
