On December 19th the Sturgis City Commission formally adopted the focus areas and goals for Sturgis 2022. The two focus areas, A Great Place to do Business and A Community of Choice have nine total goals which cover many of the areas presented during our feedback process this summer. These focus areas and goals are detailed in the sidebar.
This approval means that Sturgis 2022 is moving into the next, longest phase: implementation. As a result, this site will be undergoing some changes as we transition away from introducing ideas and gathering feedback to presenting our goals and discussing how we plan on implementing them.
Starting in January of 2013 you will begin to see more information here and elsewhere about the focus areas, goals, and how we intend to measure them over the next ten years. A report detailing the feedback received and the new focus areas and goals will be available online and in hard copy shortly.
While the City has taken the lead on Sturgis 2022, from the start it was not meant to be a “City” effort but a community one. To achieve our goals and vision will require support from local organizations, businesses, and citizens.
For all those who provided feedback, thanks again.We hope that you will want to become a partner with us in Sturgis 2022. Your support does not need to be in the form of serving on a committee, or starting a program; anything you can do to make positive change a reality helps.
Over the next 10 years we want Sturgis 2022 to become a household phrase in Sturgis that immediately refers to positive changes in the community. We plan to regularly update this website and Facebook page with information on our efforts and will produce updates each year on our plans and progress.
We hope you will help by partnering with us to make the vision of Sturgis 2022 a reality.
