Frequently Asked Questions
Greater Newport Vision 2040 - Project Documents
Stakeholder engagement is crucial to the development of a community-wide vision and strategic plan. In
developing this Communications and Outreach Plan, the consultant team is assuming three phases in
the Greater Newport Area Vision 2040 Project around which communications efforts and outreach
activities are built. Opportunities to inform and engage will occur within the following phases:
1) Foundation building
2) Vision development and refinement
3) Strategic planning
What is a community 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. Every effort will be made to encourage community-wide participation, with a specific focus on multi-cultural engagement.
Over the coming months, the City’s Vision Team will work with the community in developing a long-range, community-wide vision. Community activities for The Greater Newport Vision 2040 Project will kick off in early 2017 and last through summer 2017. At the end of this project, after much community engagement and feedback, the Greater Newport Area will have a community-wide Vision and Strategic Plan to help navigate future issues and guide community initiatives.
