AMS Planning and Research has reviewed and organized the public feedback received on the draft strategic plan. This included over 300 comments in the survey instrument, several documents, memos e-mailed to the Center and comments received in person at the hearing on July 6, 2022. All input received will be available as an addendum to the plan.

 

The MCC Governing Board hopes to address the plan again in September 2022 based on input from the community and MCC staff. The extra time will allow board members and the public to review all of the materials that have been produced over nearly a year of hard work by the Community, Staff, Board and AMS.
