One other way to prioritise is to work backwards from the available resources

If we combine this with a process of reviewing progress being made on policy issues

we get to a practical assessment of what can be done with the resources available and what priority the Community is indicating by its actions

So for me we need a process of identifying resources and reviewing progress

Issues that outstanding could be reviewed as part of the Strat Plan/Operations planning process - and if priority is agreed, resources could be identified and with the possible consequence that some projects may need to be wound up or deferred..

Thanks Jaimie, and here's a short recap of what I was saying, as Chuck requested:

- Keep a model-based approach but simplify.
- Council Leadership could play a part in suggesting priority projects to Council, those suggestions based on model approach.
- Or we could take our thinking "outside the box". One idea: use US Congress style system of wiping the slate clean at the end of each calendar year. Others will no doubt have different ideas to suggest as well.
