Last week, we assembled the Mt Vernon Community Champions (MVC2) for the second time to review the draft of our Future Growth Plan. With 240 stakeholders in attendance, we were delighted with the level of community engagement, and the input received was valuable. Our next steps include bringing our MVC2 Advisory Committee back in February to disseminate the MVC2 input and to refine the Future Growth Plan before taking it to the board in March. To review the presentation, video, and other curated documents related to our collaborative work, please visit the MVC2 page on our website. Thank you for sharing your voice on the future of Mt. Vernon!
