Did you know….
A Community Strategic Plan makes our community more competitive for grants. A new plan is currently being developed and you are encouraged to get your project ideas and concerns incorporated into the plan. A good place to start is by taking the community survey (see link below) and assure your friends do the same. If you have a group of people with a special concern you want to see addressed in this plan, you can request a meeting that focuses on that topic. These meetings need to take place before the middle of March to assure that this information can be incorporated into the final plan when it is produced at the end of March.
Get involved in changing the community’s future.
