Statement of Purpose
“Some communities allow the future to happen to them. Successful communities decide the future is something they can create. These communities take the time to produce a vision of the future they desire and employ a process that helps them achieve their goals," quote from National Civic league handbook.
The purpose of this committee is to create a long-term vision for the Township of Livingston that will improve the quality of life for the community, its residents and businesses.
The committee plans to accomplish this through a broad based community collaboration with all interested residents, township organizations and businesses. Input from all members of the Livingston community is vital to the success of the Vision 20/20 process.
Vision 20/20 will create an assessment of the Township’s strengths and weaknesses. It will determine who we are, where we want to be 20 years from now and what we will need to accomplish this vision.
The action areas to be addressed are:
- Arts and Culture
- Economic Development
- Public Safety
- Parks and Recreation
- Government and Volunteerism
- Environment & Open Space
- Senior Citizens
- Youth and Social Services
Sub-committees will be formed to study all of these action areas. These sub-committees will meet with all interested residents and all organizations that are involved in these areas of action. Within a set time frame, they will come back to the Vision 20/20 committee with their analysis and recommendations.
