City/County “Envision Your Future” Next Week
One week from today, Lake County and the City of Leadville will be hosting a workshop: Envision Your Future, at the Mining Musuem ballroom on Wednesday, Jan. 29, from 6 – 8 p.m.
This event is seen as an initial step in the coordinated update of their comprehensive plans and they have selected RPI Consulting of Durango, Colo. to manage the process and update each plan. A Comprehensive Plan is focused on providing long-range guidance for land use, economic development and infrastructure planning. Creating a community vision is the first step in developing up-to-date comprehensive plans. The visioning process will help residents identify their shared values and aspirations for Lake County and Leadville.
Visioning will answer:
- What concerns do you have now and for the future?
- What do you treasure and want to preserve in Lake County and Leadville?
- What would you like to change?
- What do you want Lake County and Leadville to look like in 20 years?
The vision workshop will be an interactive, fast-paced event with both small and large group discussion. Shortly following the workshop, planners will draft vision statements for Lake County and City of Leadville. The vision statements will become the foundation for the comprehensive plan update as the process evolves and subject matter becomes more detailed and action-oriented. Local snacks and beverages provided. Spanish speakers are encouraged to attend, Spanish translation will be provided at the event. For additional information about the comprehensive plan update, please contact Gabe Preston at RPI Consulting, 970-382-9886.
