In the category of I’m-still-finding-old-stuff-that’s-news-to-me, I recently discovered that our county has a Futures Council with a mission to create and maintain a county vision, with benchmarks. I spoke to Jennifer Purcell at the county who shared the web site with me and said, although they are in the process of doing some significant updating to the site, all the foundational documents are there (vision, surveys, benchmarks and so forth). Did you know that their vision and goals include growth and development, Natural Environment, Economy, and Society & Culture? In a process described as having involved over 1,000 county residents and land owners, their Big Book strategic vision document was created with a twenty year horizon.
Has anyone in Cape Meares, Oceanside or Netarts had any experience with the Council?
