Goal Groups (Committees)

Three committees, which we call Goal Groups) were formed to address the three goals that were prioritized the highest during the MAPPING process in 2019. In 2021 The Tourism & Life and the Economic Development Goal Groups were combined into the Community Growth Goal Group. Click on each goal committee to learn more about their projects.
