Community Visioning

We need your feedback in the next phase of the Vision Worthington process.

Vision Implementation Teams (VIT's) have been working to identify actionable items for each of the seven vision statements developed by community members and adopted by City Council.  

After careful consideration, each team has identified 4-5 potential actions and is now seeking public input. Your feedback will help inform 2-3 action items for each vision area for City Council consideration and potential funding. 

Please join us for these two opportunities:

Vision Implementation Teams

Beginning in the summer of 2023, the City of Worthington formed seven VITs, one for each vision area identified by a citizen committee in a public process. The primary charge of each of the VITs includes conducting an inventory of actions already being pursued, evaluating action ideas suggested during the initial visioning process, and engaging people who are knowledgeable about the subject area to prepare recommendations to be shared with the public for feedback.   Ultimately, each VIT is to identify and recommend two to three action items that the Council could choose to pursue and implement in the next 12-24 months.

Vision Statements and Principles

Worthington City Council adopted and approved a series of vision statements and supporting principles that were developed over an 18-month period in 2019 and 2020, with input and feedback from thousands of Worthington citizens. The vision statements and guiding principles are aspirational and expected to be used as guides and expressions of values in pursuing and adopting action steps in each area of focus.

In December 2020, the Vision Worthington Committee shared the results of over a year of community input, which resulted in the formation of an overarching vision, seven vision statements, and supporting principles that encapsulate what they heard from the community about what Worthington should look like over the next 10-15 years. The Vision Worthington Committee submitted its final report and supporting documents to the Council. City Council adopted the Vision Statements and Principles in March 2021.
