At the first county , the consultants asked participants to stick Post-It notes to the wall laying out what they treasure about Altadena, the challenges Altadena faces and their vision for its future.
The roughly 125 participants came up with a whole variety of responses, but their were some common themes.
The first graphic above captures some of them--the graphic is a word cloud that was created by inputting every single response written down on the Post-Its by the April 4 workshop participants.
The next three graphics show what words people mentioned in each specific exercise, the first when they were asked about what they treasure about Altadena, the second when asked about Altadena's challenges, and the third when asked about their vision for Altadena's future.
Those words were put in a program and all the common words like "the," "and" and others were taken out. The graphic depicts the words mentioned most as the largest. By looking at the respective size of the words, readers can see which words were mentioned most often at the meeting.
Unsurprisingly, in the first graphic "Altadena" is one of the largest words and "community" appears to be the biggest. And readers of this site won't likely be surprised to see "business" and "businesses" among the largest-sized words.
The purpose of the ' is to gather public input on what potential changes should be made to update Altadena codes, as well as take a broader look at what priorities county planners should have for Altadena's future.
The next workshop is on Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the gym.
Editor's note: The original version of this story said the word 'Altadena' is the biggest in the above graphic.
