Steering Committee to meet with City Commission June 8

Last meeting is to present committee's work to the Commission

On Monday, June 8, the 15-member steering committee for the city's initiative, Visioning 2014 & Beyond, will sit down with the City Commission and present the work first begun when the group received its assignment a year and a half ago: develop a vision for the community's future.

After nearly two dozen meetings, the committee has carefully and systematically sifted through the input received at three town hall meetings, from a survey with over 500 respondents, and from hundreds of conversations with friends, neighbors, co-workers and clients all to determine the best way to state the community's own vision for St. Augustine's future.

When the committee meets with the commission, it will share the refined and succinct vision statement, the four strategic results of the vision, and steps that should be taken first so as to start to ensure the vision is the future.

The committee agreed upon this vision statement:

St. Augustine will be livable, authentic, waterfront city that builds upon its rich history and environment to create a distinctive community character founded on a healthy and vibrant economy, a diverse mix of people and experiences and a valuing of its natural assets.

The committee's work also identified four strategic goals that are critical to the future of the city's future, goals that each have to be considered a priority but always in consideration of balance with the other goals. Those four goals are: Liveability, Character, Authenticity and Vitality. The illustration below illustrates the concept.

To read more about each goal and to see the suggested next steps to be taken to start towards this vision, click here for the final report.

Additionally, Herb Marlowe, the facilitator for the committee during the entire process, has developed a glossary of visioning terms that may prove helpful in discussing the project. The list is available here.

The June 8 meeting is set for 1:00pm, Monday June 8, in The Alcazar Room, City Hall, 75 King St. The meeting is open to the public and available for live and on-demand viewing at www.CoSATV.com.
