See the results of your hard work.  Come take a look at this new resource for your community to steer its own course toward a better future.

In 2016 and 2017, over 1,700 people from over 50 communities embarked on a planning process to develop new system of Community Plans.

During 66 workshops, the public identified values, aspirations, ideas for action, and priorities unique to each community area.  The Community Plans include a set of actions that can be initiated by residents, businesses, property owners, local groups, etc. to improve their community.
