Energize Elizabeth!

Energize Elizabeth

You are invited to attend Energize Elizabeth! —the unveiling of a long-range vision and action plan for community and economic development—on Saturday, February 22, 2014, 6:30 PM at the Elizabeth Community Building. Please consider attending and becoming a part of our community’s determination to achieve our vision of the future.

Last autumn, a diverse group of Elizabeth citizens enlisted the help of the Illinois Institute for Rural Affairs at Western Illinois University to take a proactive approach to “MAPPING” the future of the community. They identified five high-priority goals, formed a committee for each goal, and drafted action plans. Elizabeth has completed the formal MAPPING program, but the real work associated with each goal has just begun.

The Energize Elizabeth! Town Meeting will share the vision and plans with the entire community. The celebration will include presentations, booths to learn more about each goal committee, as well as a “Taste of Elizabeth” featuring the best of the local restaurants, caterers, and wineries.

Entrance is FREE! A $10 ticket provides access to the food and tastings. Tickets can be purchased at Apple River State Bank and Elizabeth Banking Center. MAPPING individuals will also be selling tickets door-to-door.

We would be honored by your attendance and support at the Energize Elizabeth! Town Meeting. Hope to see you there!
