Concrete to hold town-wide visioning workshop
“Imagine Concrete” designed to address aesthetics, preservation, future growth
If you’ve ever found yourself saying, “You know what they should do around here…,” you might want to mark April 18 on your calendar.
That’s the day when everyone who has a stake in Concrete’s future will gather in the Concrete High School Commons room for a visioning workshop that will run from 9:00 a.m. till noon. The visioning initiative has been named “Imagine Concrete.”
Visioning is a strategy that has been used by hundreds—if not thousands—of cities and towns across the U.S., including Concrete, which held its last visioning in the early 1990s. Visioning sessions gather town stakeholders—including citizens, business owners, town staff and officials, and advisory boards such as Planning Commissions—and have them discuss targeted questions about the town.
Guided by a 10-member steering committee, “Imagine Concrete” will address the following five questions during the April 18 workshop:
What do we want to preserve?
What do we want to create?
What do we want to change?
What should our community look like in the future?
How fast should change occur?
