The Town of Wickenburg is pleased to announce that the 2017 Town Hall Report is now available on the Town’s website. The final report was presented to the Town Council at its regular meeting held April 17, 2017.
The Town of Wickenburg Economic Development Advisory Commission, with support from the Wickenburg Town Council and sponsors Wickenburg Community Hospital, Wickenburg Chamber of Commerce, Wickenburg Ranch Golf and Social Club and Arizona Public Service, hosted the Wickenburg Town Hall event on January 27 and 28, 2017 in downtown Wickenburg.
Anyone in the community could sign up to attend, and nearly 70 people did, engaging in a facilitated, solutions-oriented conversation regarding the following topics: 1) downtown, 2) economic sustainability, 3) human capital, and 4) team roping. Each conversation had a scribe serving to take notes.
The body of the final report contains consensus statements for each question discussed during the two day event. Each consensus statement represents the scribes’ effort to identify underlying points across all the facilitated conversations.
The themes found in the executive summary represent key points that emerged across the Town Hall sessions. They are consistent with past Town Halls, similar community forums and other public input. Leadership from across the community will be needed to fully develop these ideas and turn them into action in the coming years.
“We would like to thank the sponsors, staff and nearly 70 citizens who took time out of their busy schedules to provide critical feedback during the Town Hall event,” stated event organizer Aaron White, Economic Development and Community Relations Manager. “We look forward to working with the whole community as we implement many of the key findings detailed in the report.”
