Survey to launch Vision Howard County revival effort

January 16, 2004|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

An effort to revive the Vision Howard County group will begin next month with a community survey to learn which issues are most important to improving the county.

Ronald Carlson, president of the nonprofit Institute for Community Health, was hired to help organize the group's revival. He said the idea is to determine a few core issues that people see as most important to solve - such as the lack of affordable housing - and compile information for the group's board.

The survey will be followed by a series of community meetings next month and in March, he said. A board meeting in June is intended to set an agenda for the next year.

Led by Sandra T. Gray and other county leaders, Vision Howard County grew from an effort in 1999-2000 to help plan the county's future in conjunction with preparation of the 20-year general plan.
