Community 2000, Warwick’s community development non-profit, along with Warwick Town Supervisor Michael Sweeton, Greenwood Lake Mayor Jesse Dwyer, Warwick Mayor Michael Newhard, and Florida Mayor Jim Pawliczek will host a potluck picnic party to kick off the 2017 Community Visioning survey. The family-friendly event will be held on Sun., Sept. 10 from 3 to 6 p.m. at the Warwick Town Park on Union Corners Rd. in Warwick. Children of all ages are welcome.
The name of the Community Visioning project is “TOGETHER: Building Tomorrow Today.” The process invites everyone who lives or works anywhere in the Warwick Valley to think about how they would like to see their community develop over the next 20 years.
The public is encouraged to share their ideas by completing a survey that will be posted on the TOGETHER website at www.community2gether.org starting on Mon., Sept. 11. The survey will ask questions about the quality of life throughout the Warwick Valley. It will take only seven or eight minutes to complete and will be totally anonymous. Community 2000 is hoping for at least 1,000 completed surveys before the end of September.
Survey results will be posted on the TOGETHER website. Public meetings will be scheduled in November to review survey results, suggest additions and prioritize preliminary community goals to serve as the foundation of the TOGETHER vision.
“It’s up to YOU, the public, to imagine what the Warwick Valley has the potential to achieve. It will be as bold as your imagination! Learn more when you join us for the kick-off potluck picnic party,” adds Community 2000 President Roger Moss.
