One Valley, One Community

OVOF is seeking lead partners for new Action Plan.

Our Valley Our Future is seeking lead partners to champion the implementation of projects and programs featured in the nonprofit organization’s upcoming new regional Action Plan. The lead partners can be a nonprofit organization, community group, business, or government agency. A list of available projects and programs can be found by clicking here. After reviewing the list, those entities interested in serving as a lead partner can contact Our Valley Our Future at  info@ourvalleyourfuture.org for more information. All projects and programs are in draft form pending final plan publication. The new Action Plan, for the years 2022-26, will officially be released in early March and replaces the community’s first plan (2017-21). The release will culminate a 14-month process in which approximately 2,000 community members weighed in on the region’s strengths, weaknesses and challenges, and what they envision for the future.
