  3. 3. WHERE WE’VE BEEN! What is Visioning? vi sion ing noun: the development of a plan, goal, or vision for the future.

  5. 5. WHERE WE’VE BEEN! Environmental Scan JG
  6. 6. WHERE WE’VE BEEN! Community Interaction From the beginning, one extremely important element to this process has been continual promotion & community interaction. JG
  7. 7. WHERE WE’VE BEEN! Surveys • Five (5) surveys# • Close to 700 total responses (between all five)# • Many comments and feedback that’s driven the entire process. How do you see Seaside? Participating stakeholders included visitors, residents, and community members that live, work and play here! JG

  9. 9. WHERE WE’VE BEEN! Teen Summit In addition to real-time polling, we also captured notes, photos (via a photo contest) and a few videos where teens told us what they liked and didn’t like. #SeasideOR4ME Contest-winning photo JR

  14. 14. WHERE WE ARE! Town Hall Report JR
  15. 15. WHERE WE ARE! Town Hall Report JR
  16. 16. WHERE WE ARE! Town Hall Perspectives Perspective 1 Unlike any other coastal community in Oregon, Seaside # is different because it provides both residents and # visitors with abundant opportunities to nurture families # and enjoy nature in a safe community atmosphere. Perspective 2 Unlike any other community in Oregon, Seaside is # different because vacation feels like home. For people # who value an authentic small-town feel, Seaside is an # ideal place to relax, renew, enjoy nature and create # memories. EM & JR
  17. 17. WHERE WE ARE! Town Hall in a few words! Perspective 1 Perspective 2 Happy, Healthy & Inspired. A safe, livable community. Remember: Our vision is a guiding light, not a long list of actionable steps. EM & JR
  18. 18. WHERE WE ARE! Project team’s perspective It’s not an “us-versus-them-community” we live in. The young, mature and everyone in between all want to work together. If anything, this evening said that if we do more of JUST THAT, we’ll be very successful between now and 2034! EM
  19. 19. WHERE WE’RE GOING! Next steps • Bring BACK the Coraggio Group# • One workshop, in late September, to finalize the vision process# • Publicity of reports and Seaside Vision Statement# • Final report in October# • Action! JR
