Gainesville, Hall County, GA

Overview of Vision 2030

While sponsored by the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce, Vision 2030 is a community project, and participation is encouraged to everyone in the community. Vision 2030 is a coordinated group of volunteers leading long-term initiatives, defined by the citizens, to position Gainesville-Hall County as the most enviable community in Georgia by the year 2030. Acting as change agents, the group champions these initiatives and propels them forward through collaborative partnerships with government, education, business, and non-profits.

How Vision 2030 Began: 

•  Hundreds of citizens were engaged and asked to think about their community by describing and  visioning a plan for the community they would like to live, work, and play in for the next 25 years.

•  The comments and information were taken from the "Community Vision Meetings" and draft a "Common Vision" captured the major elements.

 Planning groups compiled of citizens throughout Gainesville-Hall County drafted recommendations for achieving the common visions.

•  Invite the community to review and critique the work of the planning groups.

 Every document and decision was available for public comment through open meetings, unprecedented public communications, and an accessible website. The end product, we believe, is a long-term goal and plan for Gainesville-Hall County that the vast majority of citizens recognized as their own and support wholeheartedly.

How Vision 2030 Works Today: 

• Progress toward the Big Ideas coming to fruition are done within committees. Those committee      chairs serve as part of the Vision 2030 Board. The Board meets once a month to keep updated and
 collaborate. Vision Board/Committee Chairs serve a minimum of 3 years. 

• Committee chairs and co-chairs meet regularly with their committees to further the work of their Big
  Idea goals. Committee membership is open to anyone with interest! 

• Interested community members are encouraged to be involved in committees. Frequent updates via   Chamber news, local news media, social media, and presentations keep the public informed. Please   contact us with any questions or interest!
