Over 150 enthusiastic participants turned out last week in Roswell, Georgia for Together Roswell’s Community Summit. The event opened at the Centennial High School with a special drumline performance and presentation of the colors by Centennial High School JrROTC. Attendees learned about the major themes and takeaways from the first phase of engagement. To test their local knowledge, they played a trivia game including facts and figures about Roswell called, “So you think you know, Roswell?” Participants then used an online polling system on their smartphones to provide feedback on the direction of the vision and values of the strategic plan. Value statements included topics related to arts and culture, youth education, safety, inclusivity, natural assets, and others. Following the Community Summit, input gathered from in person and online engagement will be integrated into the final plan.
Together Roswell is a planning process to develop a city-wide strategic plan. The plan will memorialize the vision, values, goals and objectives of the City for the next five years based on input from the community. The plan is expected to be completed by March of 2020.
