What is the Community Vision?

The Vision identifies community-inspired actions that the city will work on over the next decade. The 2016 plan includes five goals and 104 actions. The next Community Vision will occur in 2021-2022.

The Vision Advisory Committee (VAC) is a volunteer group that leads community outreach efforts and promotes the City’s resident based visioning process.
