Due to overwhelming interest, three additional meetings have been added to the schedule of community meetings to solicit public input for the creation of a countywide Vision.

Meetings will be held in San Bernardino on January 19, Rialto on February 2, and Colton on February 3 in addition to the 15 previously scheduled meetings throughout the county. The county is also gathering data through an online survey available at www.sbcounty.gov/vision.

"Residents, business leaders, and everyone else who has a stake in our county's future are coming together to create a vision for our county community," said Board of Supervisors Chairman Gary C. Ovitt. "The goal is to determine what residents want our county to work toward and become."

The Vision Project is a joint effort by the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors and San Bernardino Associated Governments, which includes members from each of the county's 24 cities and towns.

Through the end of January, residents are encouraged to take the online survey at www.sbcounty.gov/vision and attend one of the 15 community meetings, where participants will discuss issues facing the county and provide comments. The comments and survey results will be analyzed to create a draft vision that will be presented at the annual City-County Conference in March for finalization.

"The vision residents create will guide our leaders as the county moves forward and be the measuring stick we will use to decide how to focus all future efforts," Chairman Ovitt said.

"Creating our vision will be a major undertaking, but well worth the effort. Identifying our vision will give us a positive purpose and result in creating the county in which we and our children want to live and prosper."
