Nearly 200 citizens, journalists and community leaders attended four problem-solving conversations this month initiated by the Beacon Journal in collaboration with WKSU public radio, The Devil Strip, CMOR Research and YourVoiceOhio.org. Asked a series of questions, attendees recorded their visions of a better community, what they would change about Akron and how to get there.
