Collaborative Community Visioning Effort in Roselle
In what is likely to be the most extensive public engagement process ever undertaken in Roselle, community leaders joined forces in 2019 to create the Envision Roselle Task Force to identify a desired long-term future for the community. The group engaged residents, business owners, local not-for-profits, and other stakeholders to find out what their shared goals and important priorities are, and will analyze the data to create a strategy to make them into a reality that shapes Roselle for the next 30 years.
The Envision Roselle Community Survey closed on November 24, 2019, concluding the data collection phase of the Envision Roselle initiative. The task force will meet during the winter and spring of 2020 to analyze the data and finalize a report to the community with recommendations or the future of the Roselle community.
Community Forum November 6
Approximately 120 Stakeholders attended the Envision Roselle Community forum at Lake Park High School West Campus on November 6 to help shape the long-term future of the community. This session was open to all members of the community and employed a keypad voting system that allowed participants to provide real-time feedback. This session provided an opportunity for stakeholders to provide more insight, digging a little deeper than the community survey. A PDF of the results from this forum is available for download here.
