From Axtell Community Foundation
THANK YOU!!! You far exceeded our expectations!! Thursday night, September 21, was an engaging time with over 30 community members coming together to celebrate the many things to be proud of! And there were a lot!! After an imaginary drone tour of what we want our community to look like in ten years, each attendee wrote down 6-8 ideas. Nebraska Community Foundation staff led us to compile these 200 or so ideas into 8 categories.
*Make Axtell a destination for everyone
*Achieve smart growth as a Village
*Provide quality housing for all stages of life
*Economic growth through new business
*Awesome outdoor recreational activities for all ages and abilities
*High quality expanded library
*A vibrant community wellness center
*Provide an opportunity to expand the skills of our community
NCF staff will meet with the Axtell Community Fund board members for the second and third steps of the action planning process. They will take these ideas and craft an ambitious vision statement that will serve as a guideline when prioritizing projects areas and making grant-making decisions. The fourth step will involve community members meeting again and forming working committees to accomplish the goals set forth. We look forward to hearing more from you on how you believe these goals can be met!
