ENVISION plans community forum
Thursday, June 05, 2014 11:00 AM
The ENVISION Jefferson County Steering committee will host another community forum to discuss the county's vision on June 19.
The meeting will be from 7-9 p.m. at the Brown Gym.
At the forum, the committee will present six areas that could use improvement in the community. The forum will be used to discuss which items are important to the community and which should be cast aside.
The goals were created after receiving public input at three other public meetings about ways to improve the quality of life in the county.
The community forum will ensure the committee is focusing on the right issues.
The six areas the committee will address are advancing economic vitality, creating an attractive physical environment, improving the quality of education, developing a thriving entertainment and arts culture, building a positive community through leadership and promoting health and safety.
The steering committee, which consists of 31 community members, met for three hours Wednesday to discuss the community forum and what would happen at the program.
After the community forum, the steering committee will meet July 16 to present a draft of the action plan. The plan will be introduced to the community on Aug. 13 to get an idea of where to start on these initiatives, and a final plan is expected to be finished by September.
