COMMUNITY CONVERSATION SEPTEMBER 24, 2015
FOLLOW UP NOTES
from the Community Conversation of August 13, 2015
Brown County Art Colony of the Midwest http://www.browncounty.com/art-colony-of-the-midwest
Background: How is Brown County perceived today? What changes or improvements do we want in Brown County for the future? How can Brown County efficiently and effectively prepare to meet the future? As Brown County’s Vision 2010 was winding down, these were the questions that catalyzed a Needs Assessment and new visioning project for 2020 called "Brown County 2020: A Vision for the Future." This document does not so much lay out a specific action plan, as set forth the guiding values of the community with ideas of how these might be reflected and implemented. The underlying vision of V-2020, grounded in community input and many meetings of interested parties and stakeholders, informed a newer initiative in 2013, titled "Leading Brown County." This latter document, to be read in conjunction with Vision 2020, was designed to assist leaders to identify and capitalize on strategic opportunities. We urge all interested parties to consult both "Vision 2020" and "Leading Brown County," available on the website of the Brown County Community Foundation – www.bccfin.org under Resources.
