What is a community vision?
Visioning is a process through which a community can envision the future it wants, plan how to achieve it, and begin to make it happen. A community vision is an overall image of what a community aspires to be and how it prefers to look at a point in the future.
The City of Newport is in the process of developing a long-range, community-wide vision. A vision is a statement of our common values and, as such, is strongest when there is broad public engagement. Greater Newport's 2040 visioning process offers an opportunity for the community to envision the future it wants and the steps that collectively need to be taken to make that desired future a reality. The vision will help guide the City and community in decision making and community partnership building moving forward.
