Citrus County had its vision checked and focused towards a destiny designed by those who know it best.
Roughly 164 county government officials, residents, business owners, community leaders and visitors gathered Saturday at the College of Central Florida’s Lecanto campus for Citrus 2030’s Vision Check to clarify what they’d like to see happen over the next decade.
Citrus 2030, Leadership Citrus’ successor to Citrus 20/20, and its 10 focus groups took down a lot of notes from the public and its desires for education, the arts, economic development, health, the environment, public safety, tourism, growth and the youth.
More than 135 surveys were also submitted at Citrus 2030’s website, www.citrus2030.org.
Citrus 2030, whose motto is “Destiny by Design,” will put another survey online out on Oct. 14, when it will ask county stakeholders what ideas from the Vision Check they’d like to prioritize.
