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.

Visioning 2014 & Beyond Update

 

Next step: Town Hall Meeting

Monday, August 18, 5:30pm

Willie Galimore Center

Members of the Visioning 2014 & Beyond steering committee met on August 4 to begin to sift through, analyze and categorize data collected from the nearly 500 submissions of last month’s community survey. (Click here to see survey results.)


Now the next step is for the committee to take its findings back to the community to check, to ensure, that it correctly heard what the community said. That next step takes place on Monday, August 18 at a Town Hall meeting* starting at 5:30pm at the Willie Galimore Center, 399 Riberia St. The public is encouraged to attend and participate.


“The purpose of the Town Hall is to ensure that the committee has confidence that it has heard the community correctly before beginning the detailed work of a vision plan,” said Herb Marlowe, Visioning 2014 & Beyond’s facilitator. “In this sense the Town Hall concludes this first phase of community listening which was intended to identify the hopes, desires, and concerns of residents.”


In many ways the Town Hall is critical to the visioning process for it is an opportunity for the community to offer clarifications and maybe course corrections for the elements identified thus far by the steering committee. For this reason, participation by the community is encouraged even for those who have not followed the process or who may not have participated in the community survey.


To see the agenda for Monday’s Town Hall meeting and the meeting packet which includes a detailed description of the meeting’s format and copies of the materials that will be used, visit the Visioning Resources section below and click on the links adjacent to the August 18 Town Hall.
