As part of a Comprehensive Plan, a vision statement reflects what community members value the most about their community and the shared aspirations of what they want their community to become. The vision statement should be inspirational and set the tone for the Comprehensive Plan’s goals, policies and actions. When complete, the Comprehensive Plan is the tool used to implement the community’s vision.
At the Joint City Council / Planning Board meeting on December 7, 2015 (Public Workshop #2), those in attendence reviewed, discussed and modified a draft vision statement prepared by City staff and the consultant team. Based on the inputs received, a revised vision statement was created.
This version of the vision statement was provided as a handout at the Public Workshop #3 on February 23, 2016.
