Illinois Valley Community Vision & Strategic Plan

Illinois Valley Community Vision & Strategic Plan

With the help of RDI, the Illinois Valley embarked upon a Community Visioning and Strategic Planning process. The Community Strategic Planning process was intended to accomplish the following:
  • Bring the community together, giving voice to all, and creating more community self-awareness and empowerment
  • Clarify the outcomes that the community wishes to achieve, select the broad strategies and some priority actions that will enable the residents of the Illinois Valley achieve those outcomes
  • Begin to organize the community to move to implementation
     

In the spring of 2016, RDI began facilitating a community-wide dialogue regarding Illinois Valley's collective long-term vision, values, aspirations, and priorities for the next five years. This process helped the community envision a desired future and translate that vision into goals or objectives and the steps to achieve them.
