City seeking community input on Geneva’s future
merchants and community stakeholders are invited to two community meetings to
provide feedback that could help shape the future vision for Geneva.
The strategic plan community meetings will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 24 at the Geneva Fire Department, 200 East Side Drive and 10 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 25 at City Hall Council Chambers, 109 James St. Each meeting is expected to last two hours.
Topics to be discussed at the meetings will include:
· Community and social needs;
· Underutilized community assets;
· Opportunities to grow and support local businesses; and
· Economic development priorities.
The City’s Strategic Plan Advisory Committee (SPAC) is seeking input from the public on the current state of Geneva and what initiatives are needed to enhance quality of life for residents. The purpose of collecting the community feedback is to identify common themes and ideas for the City Council to assess when planning for Geneva’s future.
A strategic plan is a valuable tool for City leaders to acknowledge areas of improvement within a community, ascertain resources to utilize and prioritize goals.
