Achieving Our Common Vision

The plan will be implemented through the action and coordination of community organizations, citizens, stakeholder groups, and through local and regional civic leadership. The City of Keene, as an organization, will work to implement the plan through day-to-day actions as well as policies made and changed; review, negotiation, and approval of development proposals; facilities planning for services and departments (such as public works, fire, police, and parks and recreation); and programs offered by the city.

Residents, property owners, and businesses – perhaps acting through neighborhood associations, community groups or business associations – have a large role in implementing the actions of the plan as well. These groups are encouraged to read this plan and to identify ways in which their goals, programs and actions can align with the community's vision for the future.
