Whether you’re a parent or a community, it’s always good to plan for the future. Residents in Madison County are doing just that through a group called Envision Madison. Envision Madison
is a group currently helping to plan what the next 50 to 100 years in Madison County may look like.
“The purpose of this of course is planning and it’s a grass roots planning, we encourage all community members to be involved in this process, we want it to be a grass roots effort and not top down or government run” said County Commissioner Jon Weber.
The group will have a series of meetings asking for the public’s input with everything from education, to emergency services, to infrastructure and so on.
“This community and our county have been built upon a foundation of great families that have sacrificed many things and some sacrificed all that we can enjoy what we have today; as we move forward it’s our turn, it’s our turn to plan the future and to leave a legacy for our children and our grandchildren and so on” continued Weber.
This planning process is expected to take anywhere from 18 months to two years before any of the physical progress starts to show.
The first meetings for Envision Madison will be held tonight at 7:00 at Sugar Salem Jr. High and at Southfork Elementary.
There will be more meetings held tomorrow at BYU-Idaho’s Taylor Chapel and on June 20th at Madison High School. All the meetings will begin at 7 p.m.
