What is Vision 20/20?
Vision 20/20 is an initiative designed to transform Lake Havasu City by focusing on a common mission to reverse the current economic trend and begin cycling back to net gains for a healthy economy.
Together, we can change the story of Lake Havasu City. We are collaborators. We are committed to our citizens. We are game changers. We are the future.
To transform our economy, we must work together to reach our goals. For our community to survive we must diversify the economy, build on the entrepreneurial spirit of Robert P. McCulloch, who brought us the London Bridge, have an educated workforce with the skills needed by our employers and continue to be a destination of choice.
As part of the America’s Best Communities contest, committed leadership has taken action to identify Lake Havasu City’s biggest challenges to future economic growth and has engaged the community in conversation on how to address these challenges and identify opportunities.
HOW IS THE REVITALIZATION PLAN EXECUTED?
The Revitalization Plan is not a vision or a plan for “this is what we would like to happen.” It is about how we can take action and change our current path. The plan is action-oriented — what can we do today to make a difference for tomorrow?
Each of the Five Pillars of the Revitalization Plan are separate action plans with key strategies and tactics to achieve specified goals. Each plan also has multiple Implementing Partners that have agreed to work collaboratively on the strategies and actions of each Pillar.
Implementing Partners are incorporating these tactical actions into their existing work programs and efforts; some will be totally changing their programs to focus on the Pillar initiatives and others, such as volunteer associations, will need funding and/or staff assistance.
Some projects will need more resources as implementation moves forward, which would be identified by Pillar Co-Champions and Implementing Partners.
WHO OVERSEES THE REVITALIZATION PLAN?
The America’s Best Communities (ABC) contest application effort and the Revitalization Plan have been stewarded by stakeholders (ABC Team) dedicating their time to engage, align and identify partners, businesses and individuals to collaboratively create a plan for change.
Upon completion of the Revitalization Plan, the ABC Team will continue in a collaborative leadership role to be a feedback body for the Launch Implementation Plan (2016-2017, 11 months) and representative body to the ABC Contest.
