NEWSFLASH: We’re excited to lay the groundwork for establishing a Clinton Community Council. Check out the details on the Community Council page.
The Clinton Future Search Conference brought together 70 people in the Clinton Community Hall for a lively and intense 3- day process in January to explore and answer the conference question:
Given the inevitability of change, how do we take the reins and create a future for Clinton’s central core that will enable our community to thrive?
The conference culminated in the beginnings of a shared vision for desired future, specific plans for how to start to make that vision a reality, and initial commitments to move those plans into action.
Participants were selected to represent a range of different stakeholders groups, to ensure that the conference outcomes would reflect diverse perspectives and interests. The eight represented stakeholder groups included:
- Owners of Businesses in the Clinton Core
- Owners of other Clinton Businesses
- Residents of the Clinton Core
- Rural Residents
- Public Agencies
The Future Search Process
The Future Search process is structured around five core tasks which each take about three hours to complete. Participants explore – in turn – the past, the present and the future through a series of semi-structured dialogues. Techniques such as timelines and mind-mapping are used to quickly identify major trends and issues. Dialogue takes place both in stakeholder and mixed groups of 6-8 people, followed by small groups reporting their conclusions to the whole group. Everything is posted, visible, and discussed by the whole group.
There are no upcoming events.
