MAYVILLE - Since adoption of Chautauqua 20/20 in April of 2011, a great deal of progress has been made in implementing many of the plan's recommendations.
The plan stated the county, facilitated through the Department of Planning and Economic Development, would provide periodic updates of how it was doing in terms of undertaking prescribed projects in the various focus areas, which include: tourism and cultural resources; agriculture and foods; business and economic development; infrastructure and public investment; education and libraries; workforce development; environment and waste management; water resources; historic preservation; architecture and community revitalization; active living and recreation; energy; youth; housing; healthcare; local government; community action; human services; and civic organizations.
In pursuit of this pledge, the CCDPED recently published a comprehensive newsletter providing a brief narrative of the highlights of what has been accomplished since Chautauqua 20/20 was adopted almost two years ago, as communicated by community, civic and business leaders.
