Yampa Valley Data Partners, Craig Chamber host My Vision, My Voice
After Wednesday morning’s economic development seminar at Colorado Northwestern Community College, the community improvement theme carried into another meeting on Wednesday night.
Yampa Valley Data Partners and the Craig Chamber of Commerce paired together to embark on the My Vision, My Voice: Moffat County 2035 project.
The purpose of the project is to develop a “long-term plan that looks to the future and sets out the shared goals and priorities for the community. The community vision is a roadmap that helps us plan our future and track our progress.”
Keith Kramer, executive director at Yampa Valley Data Partners, said Shell Oil Company and Union Pacific provided the main funding for the project, though City Market and other area companies helped, too.
The project consists of three meetings; the Wednesday night meeting in Craig, a Monday meeting in Maybell and another meeting from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday at Colorado Northwestern Community College in Craig.
An online questionnaire serves community members who are not able to go to any of the three meetings. The questionnaire can be accessed via the Craig Chamber of Commerce website or Yampa Valley Data Partners website.
The online questionnaire will close sometime after the New Year begins.
After the meetings and questionnaire finish, Kramer said YVDP will gather the data and compile it into a report.
The report will be an insert in the Craig Daily Press and will also be available online.
Local land managers have proposed allowing the public to rent out Sarvis Cabin on the banks of the Yampa River just below Stagecoach Reservoir.
