The Coppell Vision 2040 initiative is a large-scale community visioning initiative that will ultimately create the Vision 2040 Strategic Plan for the City of Coppell. This is a long-range visioning process that will ensure that residents, business owners, local institutions and all community stakeholders will have a voice in future decision making, and will provide the City of Coppell with the insight needed to set intelligent, coordinated, and creative future priorities.
As part of this project, which will run throughout 2018 and wrap up in early 2019, the City is engaging the community in a series of conversations deigned to identify scenarios for the future, and to create an inclusive vision and roadmap to serve all of the stakeholders of Coppell reaching out to 2040.
A two-day Think Tank workshop will be held on Monday, June 25 and Tuesday, 26 from 4:30 – 9pm at Four Points by Sheraton, 1580 Point West Blvd, Coppell. This workshop will launch the Coppell Vision 2040 initiative and will be based on “scenario planning” – a process that has been used successfully in leading communities and regions across North America, Europe and elsewhere in the world. The Think Tank will be facilitated by Future iQ, the City’s visioning consultant.
In addition to current community stakeholders, the public is invited to apply for a limited number of open participant slots. Applications will be considered from all interested parties, and selection will be determined on a first come, first served basis. Ideal candidates will:
- Be Forward thinking and positive
- Have a willingness to share knowledge and experience of Coppell
- Be committed to attending and actively participating throughout the duration of the Think Tank.
