Strengthening and Sustaining Community

While managing growth may have been the most called-for aspect of Flagstaff 2020, “Strengthening and Sustaining Community” was truly the center of the seven target areas. The Action Team wanted to plan for a community in which people could connect through public parks, festivals, neighborhood activities, and acts of human kindness. They envisioned a strong, close-knit community which would make all citizens feel welcome and proud of Flagstaff’s past, present, and future.

It could be argued that the successful implementation of the six other target areas’ goals would result in the realization of the goals of the Strengthening and Sustaining Community Action Team.
