Heartland 2060 is about a region working together so that we and future generations may have the opportunity to live our values in a world that is constantly changing. By building a more resilient region, citizens, business and government can respond to changes beyond our control in a cooperative, proactive partnership based upon shared goals and established relationships.
In order to accomplish this over the coming decades, there must be a strategic plan of action to engage decision makers, community leaders, business owners, educators, environmentalists, and citizens of all ages. The Heartland 2060 Five Year Strategic Action Plan will be web-based on www.heartland2060.com. Information from partners’ contributions will be available upon this platform to track alignment with the goals of Heartland 2060.
Benchmarks will be evaluated annually to measure progress toward meeting goals and for consistency with regional and state economic development plans. Strategic actions may include update of comprehensive plans, adoption of strategic or capital funding plans, implementation actions, creation of programs and training, staging of events or festivals, or any of a wide variety of activities undertaken by government, private sector, non-profits and community organizations. The Six-Pillar Platform will be used for the Strategic Action Plan.
