Vision and Goals Meeting

The third public meeting focused on the Vision and Goals chapter of the Comprehensive Plan. These visions and goals were identified from past public meetings, interviews and results from the community survey. The meeting began with an overview of this portion of the Comprehensive Plan, attendants then broke out into smaller focus groups to review, edit and discuss the four main components: Housing & Neighborhoods, Economic Development, Land Use and Quality of Life.


For the vision of Council Grove 2025, we want to hear from you! The draft version of the document here. If you were unable to attend the meeting or have additional comments, please email them to us.

For the 2025 Council Grove Comprehensive Plan to be useful, it must also be relevant by establishing a vision for growth and supporting goals, guiding principles, and providing practical recommendations to implementation and achievement.
