Connecting the region for future growth
by Staff Writer
“CONNECT Our Future” is a process through which communities, counties, businesses, educators, nonprofits and other organizations work together to grow jobs and the economy, improve quality of life and control the cost of government.
This process will create a regional framework developed through extensive community engagement and built on what communities identify as existing conditions, future plans and needs, and potential strategies.
It is supported by a $4.9 million HUD Sustainable Communities Grant and $3 million in local in-kind public and private matching resources.
The CONNECT Our Future three-year process will engage public, private and nonprofits across the 14-county region.
