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.

If you missed one of the first round meetings and want to get an update of the discussion, please watch the recording of the March 23, 2021, 5:30 p.m. meeting below:


A majority of the time spent during the public engagement meetings on March 23, 2021, was on the visioning board exercise.  This engagement exercise provided an opportunity for meeting participants to provide feedback about Clay County and the most pressing issues/opportunities.  Please click the image below to view the feedback received:
