How was the community involved?

There were two main opportunities for community involvement:

1. Community & Business Survey: Closed February 18, 2018

The Community & Business Survey Report, which summarizes survey results, will help build a shared vision for the strategy.

2. Community Planning Forum and Open House was held March 8, 2018 from 5 to 8pm

At the Community Planning Forum we discussed preliminary survey results, confirm strategy goals, and ask for your thoughts on actions for the Economic Development Strategy.
