Our Shared Vision of the Future
You shared your perspectives, and together we've brought a vision of Worthington's future into focus. Listen as your neighbors reflect on what our new vision statements mean to their lives and families.
Vision Statements and Principles Adopted
Worthington City Council has adopted and approved a series of vision statements and supporting principles that were developed over the past 18 months 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, 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 Council. City Council subsequently discussed the report and possible next steps at its January 2021 retreat. Information about next steps will be posted here when it is available.
