Chamber Quarterly Membership Meeting ~ Evolving & Moving Forward as a Community
Evolving & Moving Forward as a Community
The Barton County Chamber invites you to join us in creating a vision for our community. The first step will be attending our Quarterly Breakfast on August 1st to begin understanding the importance of a Comprehensive Plan for our community.
Great places are not created by accident, communities make choices every day about the type of places they will become.
These choices are incremental; it is not always clear what impact a single decision will have. Many decisions made over time have created the communities in which we now live---so let’s propel our future with data-driven guidance for our future prosperity!
Comprehensive plans are a vital tool for communities to cohesively build a Visionary Road Map. Let’s Evolve Together!
***Space is limited to 50 attendees****
