For those who were unable to make it to the recent Community Vision Workshop, the city will host a second workshop next week, which will be virtual.
The workshops are being held as part of the city’s efforts to update its five-year strategic plan, which will guide decisions about the city’s future. The virtual community visualization workshop will take place from 7-8:30 p.m. on September 7.
This virtual meeting will run similarly to the in-person session, with small breakout groups to facilitate interaction and discussion. The Zoom link to the virtual workshop is berrydunn.zoom.us/j/9054116517.
“Holding a virtual session provides another opportunity for residents to speak out on issues that are important to them,” St. Charles Economic Development Director Derek Conley said in a city news release. of St.Charles.
City administrator Heather McGuire noted the benefits of virtual meetings.
“Virtual meetings make it easier for some residents to participate,” she said in the statement. “People today have busy schedules. Anything the city can do to reach as many residents as possible so they can be part of the strategic planning process is a plus. For this reason, we are also adding a virtual option to the next Community Forum in October.
The community forum, which will be held both virtually and in person, will give residents a first look at an early draft of the strategic plan and provide an opportunity to provide feedback. For those wishing to attend the forum in person, it will be from 5-7 p.m. on October 19 at the St. Charles City Council Chambers in the St. Charles Municipal Building, 2 E. Main St.
