At the Community Meeting on March 5th almost 100 Swanton community members set five priorities for action to advance the community (see full descriptions below):
-Improve River Access and Bike-ability and Expand Outdoor Recreation Opportunities and Bike Tourism
-Unite the Community to Reduce Substance Abuse
-Improve Traffic, Walkability, and Parking Downtown
-Create a Swanton Arts Council
Now we need your help!
Task force groups are being formed to help address these key priorities. A number of volunteers signed up at the meeting last Thursday but we hope more members of the Swanton community will volunteer to join one or more task force groups.
Simply reply to this email and let us know the task force(s) that you would like to participate in and we will add you to the list. And spread the word by forwarding this email along to others in the community, sharing this information on Front Porch Forum, and sharing this Facebook Event:
The next meeting in the Community Visit process has been scheduled for Wednesday April 15th from 6:30 to 9:00pm at the Swanton Public Library. VCRD will bring a new Visiting Team of state, federal, regional, non-profit, and philanthropic leaders to Swanton to help task force groups as they develop action steps and resource ideas to move these projects forward. Swanton has set an ambitious agenda; it can succeed in these goals if residents line up for action.
Hope to see you on April 15th!
