Community Conversation results are in
RAYMORE, MO - About 125 residents participated in a community conversation, What brings you home to Raymore?, at Centerview on Oct. 1. The event allowed residents to share their hopes and ideas for the future of Raymore and to evaluate the accomplishments of the City’s strategic plan that was created as a result of feedback from residents in community conversations and citizen surveys in early 2016.
Partnering with KU Public Management Center and once again using 21st century town hall interactive technology, participating residents assessed their satisfaction with the strategic plan and worked together to identify new goals for Raymore in each of the four focus areas of the strategic plan: community identity and connections; safe, well-designed and beautiful places; economic vitality; and the City as a high-performing organization.
The results were presented to the City Council at Monday night’s City Council work session.
The public is invited to the City Council meeting at 7 p.m., Monday, Nov. 19, for a presentation of the report.
Overall, residents attending the forum were overwhelmingly positive about the progress of the community and hopeful about the future. The full report can be found on the City’s website at www.raymore.com/StrategicPlan.
