Puna's CDP is based on topic areas, each addressing the <br />p g needs of the <br />entire Puna District. <br />How to engage the Communities in workft through the CDP Action Committee: Talking <br />with representatives of the various community groups. Difficulty in identifying and <br />contacting all of the community groups working in the South Kohala district. Puna AC <br />reported a greater level of success in getting community groups to work for their goals <br />through the PCDP Action Committee. <br />Develo�� CIP and General Budget requests: Successes and obstacles were discussed. The <br />importance of having our Planning Department Manager as a mentor in the process; as well as <br />assistance in getting our requests to the correct party. We discussed the efficacy of using <br />assistance with budget requests as a way to connect with community interest groups. <br />Priority Lists: Puna members shared the Priority List. South Kohala members liked the <br />concept. They reported that the priorities are all included within their document, but are not <br />pulled out and highlighted for action in the way they would be if included in a Priority List. <br />
