Clear Vision Eau Claire is hosting an Open House on May 16th from 6:30 - 8:30 pm in the Eau Claire River room at the RCU Corporate Center in downtown Eau Claire.
The Open House will feature three elements. First, there will be a brief overview of the history and accomplishments of Clear Vision Eau Claire. (Clear Vision is a citizen designed and led community action organization dedicated to engaging all citizens in public work that will led to lasting improvements in our community.)
Second, the event will feature the work of seven civic work groups which have been working together since last fall’s Clear Vision Empowerment Summit, to identify shared interest, define the issues, and generate and implement action plans to make our community a better place for all.
Third and last, all attendees will be engaged in helping to plan the next steps and the next round of the Empowerment Summit, where citizens are given the knowledge and skills to enable their dreams of a better community to come to life.
We know that our highest success will come with the diverse and vibrant contributions of our entire community, and hope that you will be a part of empowering yourself and others at Clear Vision’s Open House.Whether you are a past Clear Vision participant, a member of an ongoing, currently active civic work group, someone who is possibly interested in joining, or simply someone who is interested in learning more, please join us!
Engaging Our Community for the Common Good
Clear Vision Eau Claire is a county-wide initiative to develop a collaborative vision for Eau Claire. Our mission is to engage all citizens to reach a common goal and purpose.
Starting the discussion
Effective democracy begins with citizens talking about the kind of community we want. Clear Vision helps this process by promoting greater civic participation and collaboration.
Our role is not to replace the formal decision-making and budgeting processes of local governments and organizations, but to provide them with the voice of the collective whole. We seek to dramatically impact the rate and direction of community change and effectiveness in six key areas:
Our stakeholders and participants reflect the ethnic, geographic, age, gender, and occupational diversity of the greater community. Many of them are actively engaged in moving the plan forward.
