Cover- Vision 2032 Final Report
In May 2007, Nassau County, in partnership with the Amelia Island/Fernandina Beach/Yulee (AIFBY) Chamber of Commerce, hired consultants MGT of America, Inc. to begin a long-term planning and consensus building process and develop a 25- year vision (2007-2032) for the County.
The creation of Vision 2032 was a transparent process with all meetings open to the public. A Steering Committee was established to provide administrative oversight of the Vision 2032 project. A communication plan was developed and implemented to provide residents with information about Vision 2032. Input was received from stakeholder groups and residents of Nassau County through multiple public involvement opportunities. Eight Public Participation Sessions were held throughout the County. At each meeting, public comments were collected on a wide variety of topics. The Public Participation Sessions were used to gather the ideas, thoughts, and suggestions of Nassau County residents on their vision of how the County should look in the year 2032. The public participation process also included interviews with key stakeholders and a web site dedicated to Vision 2032 activities.
The recommended strategies of Vision 2032 reflect the community priorities identified in the visioning process. They became a primary source in the creation of the goals, objectives, and policies of the Nassau County 2030 Comprehensive Plan.
