Let’s Chat Chillicothe

The Let’s Chat Chillicothe offered an in-person opportunity on August 4 in collaboration with First Thursday. This was a chance to learn about the process, provide feedback and help prioritize draft actions. The same activities available at that event are replicated below for those unable to attend. We sincerely appreciate your time to help guide the future of Chillicothe!

In March, the first round of public engagement asked participants to share their big ideas for the future of Chillicothe. Based on this public input, past plans, Steering Committee conversations, and technical analysis – an initial set of draft actions was developed.

Please review the actions on the boards and let us know: What’s missing? What is a priority? What needs elaboration, a sidebar, graphic support, or more explanation? Each goal has its own set of objectives and associated actions. Please use the form within each goal tab to provide comments on specific actions. Let us know if your comment is in support, concern, clarifying, or other.
