Final Vision Report Accepted by City Council
The Vision Worthington committee is sharing an overarching vision, seven vision statements, and supporting principles that encapsulate what they have heard from the community about what Worthington should look like over the next 10-15 years.
The Visioning Committee submitted its final report and supporting documents to City Council in December 2020. At its January 4, 2021 meeting, City Council formally accepted the report from the committee. The Vision Report, next steps, and implementation were discussed at the City Council retreat on January 9, 2021. City Council will consider formal legislation to adopt the Visions at a later date.
