What is your vision for Wayne County in the next 20 years? The Wayne County Commissioners need your input for the new County Comprehensive Plan, Wayne Onward, on Nov. 13 and 15. The comprehensive plan will be an updated long-term guide that expresses the values and aspirations of the community and serve as a guide for future development. The plan will cover a range of topics and aims to manage change in the county while preserving what makes it special.
Everyone who lives and works in Wayne County is encouraged to attend. Four workshops are scheduled over the course of two days. All the workshops are identical sessions, so please choose the location that is convenient for you. The workshops will be highly interactive and designed to allow participants to provide ideas to help shape the plan. There will be a brief presentation on the planning process followed by small group work, during which participants will be asked to share their thoughts through discussion and a mapping exercise.
The input gathered, along with technical analysis, will be used to develop a vision and specific, implementable action items that county agencies and organizations can pursue.
“We want our plan to incorporate everyone’s vision for the future, so we hope we get many people across the County to participate. This is a special opportunity for our community to share big ideas for Wayne County,” said Trevor Hunt, Director of the Wayne County Commissioners’ Planning Department, which is spearheading the project.
Wayne Onward was initiated in Fall 2018. The final plan will be completed by Fall 2019. More information can be found online or by contacting Trevor Hunt at 330-287-5423 or [email protected]wayneohio.org.
