Top 3 Priorities:

Agriculture & Food Systems
Developing a local food economy that supports our farmers and provides reliable access to healthy, safe, locally grown food, including collaboration with our surrounding counties.

Development & Housing
Our greatest challenge is protecting and preserving our rural heritage while also ensuring affordable housing for all segments of our community, but especially for those whose wages are insufficient to pay for safe and adequate housing.

Economic Development
We have an unemployment level that is close to what most economists consider full employment. Some sectors, such as restaurant work and building trades, have trouble finding sufficient workers. Despite all that we have segments of our community with unacceptably high unemployment levels.
