This Place Belongs To All Of Us.

We have a choice, right now, about what kind of metro area we want for ourselves and for future generations.
It’s a choice between action and apathy, fiscal health or budget shortfalls, brain drain or talent boom, connectedness or isolation, planned growth or sprawl, vibrant neighborhoods or empty lots. Now is the time to look at our own neighborhoods but to also think regionally and find a common cause. What kind of community do you want for the years ahead and for the generations to come?

How Can You Get Involved?

Huge decisions affecting the fate of our community often happen with a whisper. It’s up to all of us to decide what kind of community we want to live, work, and play in. And there are many things we can do today that will have an impact on how the metro area develops in the future.
