Virtual Community Engagement Meetings - March 23


Clay County and Metro COG held two virtual community input meetings on Tuesday, March 23.  Both meetings provided the public an opportunity to be involved in planning for the future of Clay County, hear from fellow neighbors and stakeholders, and offer their input and ideas.

Each meeting included a brief introductory presentation followed by an interactive visioning workshop to develop written and visual statements about the County’s long-term goals and strategic objectives.
