OUR LATEST PRESS RELEASE
With your input the “Our Valley… What’s Next” effort will identify ideas and goals that will define strategies to help us achieve priority outcomes for our future in the following areas:
The outcome of the “Our Valley…What’s Next” project will be determined by community input. This process is managed by representatives from 25 different businesses and organizations, including a core team of listeners representing the following organizations:
With input from community partners in Our Valley, 10 guiding principles have been developed to help guide this effort:
Develop a regional vision and a strategic action plan for achieving that vision.
Maintain a broad regional focus centered on the cities of Wenatchee and East Wenatchee, but with no specific geographic or jurisdictional boundaries for the process. (Note: Boundaries may apply to specific trends or indicators used by the process.)
An independent, non-partisan process is critical, based on input from numerous and diverse sources that will develop goals and strategies for the entire community.
Engage all major sectors (public, private, civic) in sponsoring and funding the process.
Promote broad cultural diversity and community engagement in the process by the public-at-large from across the region
Reach out to traditional non-participating populations, including Latinos, millennials, lower-income residents, rural communities, etc.
Learn from reports and plans developed in recent years by other community-based organizations and jurisdictions in the region.
Identify leaders and supporting community partners from across the region in developing and implementing specific actions.
Link planned actions to specific indicators, targets and measures.
Target implementations of “easy win” actions, as well as bold, game-changing initiatives that help us achieve the vision.
