St. Augustine, as the nation’s oldest city, is a community of great heritage. With emphasis on tourism as its main economic driving force, the city enjoys a superior residential quality of life enhanced by a unique architectural history and an ambiance which is preserved to attract the arts, culture and a flourishing downtown business sector, St. Augustine is surrounded by thriving modern communities which recognize the importance of the historic downtown to overall economic vitality.

This is the vision statement resulting from the city’s 1995 community-wide St. Augustine Vision Planning Project, an effort involving over 200 members of the community, meeting in 10 topic driven committees over months to develop a blueprint for what they defined as a vision for St. Augustine’s future.

In the fall of 2013, the city commission launched a new visioning initiative called Visioning 2014 & Beyond. To learn more about the project, follow the links below.

Committee activity update

Town hall provides opportunity for community's input on

Visioning 2014 & Beyond's work thus far

 

Nearly a hundred members of the community turned out for a town hall on Monday, November 17 to review and offer input on the work completed thus far by the steering committee for Visioning 2014 & Beyond, the city's visioning initiative.

 

After brief introductions, visioning facilitator Herb Marlowe divided the attendees into four groups each with two members of the steering committee leading a review and discussion centered on the most recent draft of the strategic positioning statement, a compilation of the work of the committee. To read the document used during the meeting, click here.

 

Steering committee members carefully noted the feedback received from the town hall's participants, which included residents from across the city, business owners from a variety of commercial segments, and members of the city commission, both current and ones newly elected.

 

Based on the input received, the steering committee will review a revised strategic positioning statement at its next meeting. That revised statement will be available for review by the public prior to the committee's meeting* which is set for Monday, December 15 at 3:30pm in. The meeting is open to the public.

 

Note that while Visioning  2014 & Beyond’s two town hall meetings were held at the Willie Galimore Center so as to accommodate a larger number of participants in a facility with more flexibility, the steering committee meetings are held in The Alcazar Room, City Hall, 75 King St. which makes them available for live or on-demand viewing at www.CoSATV.
