In January, 34 Orcas Island residents entered into a consensus building process to craft a vision statement for Eastsound in 2035. The group’s work was done under the auspices of the Eastsound Planning and Review Committee and EPRC members Bob Maynard, Fred Klein and Jeff Otis participated in the workshop. The group, as a whole, chose to create a vision statement that is supported by “pillars” to communicate the vision’s intention and provide definitions of the key concepts.
Now the EPRC is asking for input from members of the community. It will be hosting a community feedback session on Friday, March 31 from 6 to 8 p.m. Public comments can also be made via email to San Juan County at firstname.lastname@example.org. On April 6, the EPRC meeting will also include time for final community comments. View the vision statement on the Orcas Island Library website at http://www.orcaslibrary.org/ and at http://eastsound.vision/.
