Why does the Village Center need a vision?

Going through the process to develop a vision plan will help the public, town, and stakeholders articulate a clear and common direction for future public and private investments. For example, a stated vision will help the Town secure funding for public infrastructure improvements by demonstrating to state and federal agencies that the community is on board. It also gives the business community confidence in investing in area. As long as their efforts are consistent with the vision, they can be assured that the public will support their endeavors.
