The public is invited to become part of the dialogue as officials plan for the future of Seneca.
“The city is using study circles to develop our long-range plan,” said Seneca City Planner Tamy Sanford. “The long-range plan gives the city guidance for decision making. These study circles will give people the rare chance to express their hopes and concerns for the community. Participants will lay the important ground work for positive change in the city.”
Study circles are scheduled to begin this week throughout the city. Each site will host four consecutive sessions. Each session builds on the one before it.
“It’s the goal of the city to involve as many members of our community as possible in study circles,” Ms. Sanford said. “The city needs individuals, who will commit their time and their leadership to this endeavor. It needs people not only to participate in study circles, but who can also assist in recruiting participants.”
Because public input is so important, the city is offering a weekly drawing for one $100 gift card for those that participate. The city will draw the name of one participant each week who will receive a $100 gift card.
Study circles will take place on the following dates at the listed locations:
-- St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church, 170 Bountyland Road on April 14, 21 and 28 as well as May 5. All sessions will run from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
