Heartland Visioning Task Force to Meet for First Time

TOPEKA, Kan. - The Heartland Visioining Task Force will hold its first meeting Thursday, July 10th at the Ramada Hotel, 420 SE 6th St., Topekea, at 8:00 a.m.

Nearly 200 Shawnee County citizens make up the Vision Task Force. Task Force members were selected from more than 890 Applications for Involvement received by the Heartland Visioning office.

The Heartland Visioning Task Force represents all parts of Shawnee County. Their role is to discuss and create the first draft of the vision plan. They will be using the comments and suggestions received since the visioning project started, facts and data about the community and personal experience.

The first meeting will involve introductions of the 200 member Task Force, becoming familiar with the work materials and process, and developing key benchmarks to measure progress over the five to 20 year implementation.

In subsequent meetings, the Vision Task Force will discuss and identify community core values and strategies to work on under the six foundations.
