I grew up in Northern Kentucky and I have also moved out of state and come back to the area three -separate- times. That experience has given me a new appreciation for how much Northern Kentucky has to offer. I love that I can travel to downtown Cincinnati, the airport or the country in about 15 minutes.
We have also have a lot of variety in this area and now Northern Kentucky residents are getting the opportunity to help shape the future.
Vision 2015 Launches myNKY, a Community Visioning Campaign Inviting Community Members to Help Shape the Future of Northern Kentucky
Six-month initiative invites the community’s opinion through interactive polls, quizzes, and more to help guide region through 2020
As the year 2015 approaches, it’s time to start thinking about Northern Kentucky’s next strategic plan. That’s why Vision 2015, the organization behind implementing the community’s current plan, is inviting community members to interact with myNKY, a six-month campaign launching Jan. 16 designed to engage the community in determining the priorities for Northern Kentucky’s next five-year strategic plan.
“Great communities don’t happen by accident. They need a plan and a vision,” explains Kara Williams, Vice President of Vision 2015. “Northern Kentucky has a long history of community visioning, and as we approach 2015, it’s time to begin focusing on developing the vision that will guide Northern Kentucky through 2020.”
Vision 2015 is Northern Kentucky’s 10-year strategic plan for growth designed to support economic competitiveness and regional prosperity. It is a list of goals created by the people of Northern Kentucky in 2005 based on their collective vision for Northern Kentucky in the year 2015.
Over the next six months, www.mynky.org, which launches January 16, will act as the hub collecting community input for the next five-year strategic plan. The site will feature an interactive prioritization game and a variety of polls and challenge questions on topics such as education, transportation, workforce and green space.
“We really want to know what the community’s priorities are,” adds Williams. “In addition to providing input through interactive polls and challenge questions, through the prioritization game people will have the opportunity to invest $1,000,000 virtual dollars towards their vision for Northern Kentucky. We think it will be a great way to not only see what’s important to them, but for them to see the impact those dollars can have, depending on how they are allocated.”
Check out the website and play this interactive game where you have the opportunity to share what you would like Northern Kentucky to invest in for the upcoming years.
