Wildomar residents share ideas of the City’s future at Visioning Session
The City of Wildomar conducted its first ever strategic visioning session on October 25, 2008. Approximately 100 citizens, along with members of the City Council and the Planning Commission as observers, spent the hours from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. sharing collective visions and brainstorming valuable insights on what the City of Wildomar should become and look like in the future.
Led by John Danielson, City Manager, this community-driven event was divided into strategic sessions touching on important concerns, shared dreams, and possible steps needed for achievement of goals. Ten top initiatives were identified by community participants; Business Foundation, Traffic Enforcement, Community Center/Social Services, No New Taxes Versus Creative Financing, Performing and Creative Arts, Higher Education, Parks and Trails Planning, Infrastructure, Maintain Rural Open Space, and Design Guidelines. Of prime importance and set out as a challenge at the meeting, was successful City funding for projects. As projects develop, resultant expenditures will need to be carefully considered and balanced with the needs of the community.
Deemed a resounding success at the beginning steps in carving out a bright future for the City of Wildomar, the newly-outlined initiatives and united energy formed at this session will carry far-reaching impact into the years ahead.
