Valparaiso City Council has approved the ValpoNEXT Vision Plan! A large number of community members turned out for the hearing and many spoke with glowing praise about the plan and the extensive community outreach process that led to its adoption. The final plan sets forth a vision statement and nine initiative areas that organize 43 actions (projects, programs or policies) that will advance the initiatives. Multiple face-to-face public workshops as well as online activities provided for a robust engagement throughout the process. The engagement reached over 880 people and gathered 2090 pieces of input. Congratulations to the city, the steering committee and everyone who worked tirelessly to build the positive momentum needed to put together a plan that will be a blueprint for greatness for decades to come.
