**For those who were not in attendance:
After the presentations, everyone broke out into 8 focus groups based on the chapters of the Master Plan (i.e. Transportation, Open Space and Recreation, etc.) to discuss the strengths and challenges of that chapter as it applies to the town. Master Plan Committee members reported out to the room what was discussed in their assigned focus groups. Finally, all participants were given 12 dot stickers to walk around the room and assign to topics they think are of the highest priority for West Brookfield.

In this activity, groups were provided with one large map of the town and one set of "land use stickers". Groups were required to discuss the stickers and decide where they should be applied on the map.
