Community visions Livable Community Design The idea of achieving a liveable community design is another aspect of Community-Based Planning. A livable community is one that has a high quality of life, or is pleasant to live in. Many things can contribute to a high quality of life. An opportunity relating to our region was identified numerous times at the public meetings in January. Some of the region's strengths would fall into this category. It was identified that we live in a less stressful and safe environment, and have abundant natural resources. It was also identified there are low crime rates. The data supports this fact. In 1997 less than 2,000 crimes were reported for the five county region. In comparison, the metro areas in the state reported more than 6,000 crimes in 1997. Aesthetics and beauty also play a large part in the aspect of livable community design. Photos of abandoned farm sites, abandoned main streets, kids hanging out in the streets for lack of entertainment, unkept homes, junkyards in open spaces and littered rivers were but a few of the negative images sent in by local residents concerning livable community design. These images send negative messages to all visitors and potential families who may wish to reside in the region. Focusing on the visual aesthetics and recreational amenities of the communities may attract more youth and families to the area. Although the aspect of livable community design is but one aspect of 11 goals to be addressed in the Community-Based Plan, all of the goals will be addressed at the second set of public meetings set for the following dates and locations: Tuesday, June 22, 1999 Graceville Community Center Thursday, June 24, 1999 - Dawson City Hall Tuesday, June 29, 1999 - Chippewa County Courthouse Food will be served from 6:30 to 7:00 PM.
