A few years after the Cupertino Project ended, a highly visible controversy erupted between members of the City Council over the naming of a room in the new City library. This event prompted City Manager Dave Knapp to ask the PDC to design and facilitate a community forum to address issues of diversity and demographic changes.
The PDC held a one-day training for a diverse group of local residents who then facilitated small group discussions during a community forum. Results of the forum included greater understanding of diverse perspectives of community members, as well as increased capacity for the community to address issues of diversity.
