There are plenty of ways that you can get involved:

  • Complete the online or hard copy survey.
  • Attend a community pop up.
  • Respond as a group using the Discussion Guide.
  • Complete a Drawing Sheet.

Towards 2042 allows us to consider what we love about where we live, what we’d like our future to look like, and how we will get there.

Let’s work together to capture a future vision that respects our unique local area and lifestyle. Tell us what would make our community an even better place to live in 10 years from now.
