On October 8th, the first organizational meeting of the Voyage Forward Stewards was held at Backus Community Center. An outstanding turnout of over 65 citizens joined us from throughout the county area from Northome to Island View. They learned about the engagement process, next steps and how we will work together in developing a vision and priorities for the Koochiching County area.
Attached is the PowerPoint presentation shared by Randy Lasky, Facilitator which describes the civic engagement process the Stewards will be leading, their roles and responsibilities, and the creation of three teams, self-selected by the Stewards, to move the process forward. The three teams you will hear more about in the coming weeks and months include the Buzz Team, Public Engagement Team and the Assets Team. Two of the three teams have already met twice and are moving ahead with plans and actions. Stay tuned with more to come.
