Mayor Ray Stephanson and the Everett City Council are seeking citizen volunteers to participate on a Vision Committee that will update the Vision 2025 report produced by a similar committee a decade ago.
In 2005, a citizen committee identified six key areas of focus and established near- and long-term priorities for each: education, parks/art/culture, Harborfront/Riverfront, urban design, transportation, and economic development. The new Vision Committee will review goals that have been accomplished, identify what remains to be done, and establish new goals or action strategies that the City should pursue.
Volunteers must live within the city limits of Everett and be available for two evening meetings per month from fall 2016 through spring 2017. Meetings will be organized and run by a professional facilitator. Some homework between meetings may also be required.
