Residents feel connected to their town and to one another.
As our community has evolved over time, so too the way we create community. Local church events and front-porch conversations aren’t gone, but they don’t drive our community as much as they did in the past. Participation in civic groups and organizations is lower than it has been historically. It’s time we reinvest our community in our community.
We’ll focus on building on-ramps to community participation, encouraging civic-mindedness, and making more transparent and regular communications about the goings-on here in Jasper and Newton counties.
With a real focus on communication and coordination, we will tighten the knit of the fabric of these communities and rebuild a sense of home.
