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

 

Steering Committee met on December 15 for a review and

consideration of input from town hall at meeting

The Visioning 2014 & Beyond steering committee met on Monday, December 15 for a review and consideration of input received at last month’s town hall meeting.

In November, nearly a hundred members of the community turned out for a town hall meeting at the Willie Galimore Center to review and offer input on the work completed thus far by the steering committee. 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.

During its discussion, the committee focused on several aspects of the proposed positioning statement and the initial wording that will be considered for a visioning statement. To see the agenda and material the steering committee reviewed, click here.

The committee will next meet* on Monday, January 5 at 3:30pm in The Alcazar Room to make final revisions before meeting in a workshop setting with the City Commission to review and discuss the work thus far completed. That joint meeting date has not yet been determined.
