Many people worked and volunteered for Flagstaff 2020 in different capacities. As Mayor Christopher Bavasi wrote in a proclamation declaring September 21, 1996 “Hands on Flagstaff’s Future Day,” “the greater Flagstaff citizenry, along with Vision Task Force, are partners in the development and implementation of a participatory community-wide visioning process.”

While hundreds of community members participated in community meetings and events and voiced their opinions, there are certain individuals who had even more hands-on interaction with the community visioning process.

Teams and committees were formed at different phases throughout the project to facilitate community forums, vision and action plan drafting, and general managerial concerns.
