Invest in the future of Milledgeville and Baldwin County with your voice

MILLEDGEVILLE — Recent months have presented local residents a unique opportunity to share their thoughts on their community and the direction they would like to see the community take in the future.

Key local entities, including the Baldwin County Board of Education, the Chamber of Commerce and the Development Authority, are in the midst of strategic planning phases in an effort to formulate a new community vision and strategic plan.

The local Chamber and Development Authority have a partnership with other key stakeholders, including local governing bodies, colleges and the hospital, to develop a new strategic plan for the community.

One part of this process involves community feedback. Local residents can assist in this part by sharing their thoughts online. An online survey is available for the community to provide insight into what local residents think and how they view the community in which they live. Take a few minutes to weigh and help formulate a new vision for Baldwin County’s future. This is a chance for local residents to have a greater voice in where Baldwin County progresses to over the course of the next few years. It’s a chance to gauge what locals think is important and what they think should be areas of focus for the future.

The online survey, which launched Monday morning, can be found on the Chamber’s website at www.milledgevillega.com. Survey respondents also have a chance to enter to win one of five $50 gift certificates to local Chamber businesses.

The survey will be available for the public’s input over the next three weeks.

For more information about the strategic plan or the survey call the Chamber at 478-453-9311.
