A vision statement describes the desired state of a place in the future. With community support, an effective vision can influence decisions and inspire action to move toward that idealized future. Goals further describe the outcomes that will support the realization of the vision. These, in turn, are supported by more specific strategies and actions that will implement the bigger-picture vision and goals. These strategies will involve specific proposed projects, programs, policies, and other means of achieving the community vision.
The Medical Center Area Regional Center Vision and Goals were developed with input from residents, community stakeholders and Planning Team members through an iterative process of developing and refining these concepts. During preliminary community engagement efforts and Planning Team meetings, community members, and medical institution representatives articulated important values and identified the Medical Center Area’s assets, challenges, and opportunities. This community input became the guiding principle for the Medical Center Area Vision and Goals which were refined with feedback from the Planning Team and participants at the second Community Meeting.
