“Siuslaw Vision 2025 is enVisioning Spring, and it’s time to celebrate,” said Jo Beaudreau, Vision Keepers co-chair. “It’s been a year since the Vision was unveiled last April and we want to let the community know the awesome progress that’s been made.”
The 30 minute program scheduled as part of the open house will feature members of the Vision Advisory Committee: Bettina Hannigan, Mike Webb, Rick Yecny, and Joshua Greene; along with members of the Vision Keepers steering committee: Meg Spencer and Russ Pierson.
“This ten year regional Vision project is working on multiple fronts,” said Vision Keepers co-chair, Colleen Keane. “We’ll be presenting updates on several of the Vision action items, including the Community Health Improve-ment Plan, Workforce Develop-ment, the new Community Paramedics program, ReVision Florence, and the latest in Education.”
The program will also include a brief history of the Siuslaw Vision 2025 effort, which had its origins in the Pathways project.
