Vision Little Rock

Vision Little Rock

Vision Little Rock was a community goal setting process that involved more than 300 citizen volunteers. In 2000, former Mayor Jim Dailey and the Little Rock City Board of Directors determined that the City would benefit from a follow-up evaluation of FUTURE Little Rock, which was implemented in 1992. A sixty (60)-member Vision Team was appointed and a diverse group of citizens were appointed to thirteen (13) workgroups and charged with setting the direction of Little Rock's future for the next ten (10) years. From this process thirty-three (33) goals were presented and adopted by the Little Rock City Board of Directors in January 2002. Subsequently, a scorecard has been developed to assist with monitoring these goals. An update on the status of the goals is released annually.
