New Richmond residents filled the Champs Sports Bar & Grill to see and learn about new concepts created by Forward New Richmond, the volunteer committee of citizens who have been creating recommendations for the city’s Comprehensive Plan.
This project was launched last summer and for the last 8 months, the committee has created more than 30 community improvement concepts and recommendations as part of the Comp Plan’s Community Action Plan project. Six subcommittee each had their own table display of storyboards, PowerPoint presentations and Project Portfolios offering more details about each subcommittee’s projects.
“What I just saw tonight was simply amazing. A community-driven plan, presented by community members and attended by many, many residents and stakeholders. What I just witnessed was amazingly talented and authentic people from throughout the community speak with passion and purpose about their ideas for our collective community. Inspiring!!!”
“This process and plan rocks. Thank you for inspiring us!”
Mike Darrow, Administrator, City of New Richmond
