Quality of Life Planning Underway

As a Stellar finalist for the 2nd year in a row, Marshall County is taking a broader focus through Quality of Life Planning that will grow our community for years to come. The Stellar steering committee recently held a workshop to engage stakeholders, allowing them to learn more about Stellar and get involved in the planning process. As a further measure of public engagement, our communities are stepping up to provide more funding to make sure that our Quality of Life Plan is supported at the local level.
This year, the Stellar process has changed from designating two regions, to one—allowing for more resources to be allocated to that region. The Regional Development Plan is due in September, and the designee will be announced in December. Our goal is to put together a plan that will pave the way to Stellar success and guide quality of place initiatives in Marshall County for the next 20 years.
