The “Big Tent”

The Community Partners meeting (a/k/a the “Big Tent” Meeting) was created by the Flint Resource Recovery team as a working meeting for a diverse array of Flint Water Crisis stakeholders to coordinate their activities and share information.  Today it is facilitated by the FACT and is open to the public.  It is usually held in the “City Dome” behind the Flint City Hall every other Thursday at 3pm.
