The mission of Visioning a Greater Racine

Is to engage the community in creating a vision of what Racine can be 10-15 years from now, and developing a road map for how to get there. This effort will produce an economic development strategy based on community engagement and quality of life. We receive support from the Racine Community Foundation and several leading financial institutions.

A Great Start

Visioning a Greater Racine is a networked-community initiative that uses the proven visioning process with the goal of transforming our community. Our goal is that by 2030, working together, we have created a flourishing place we are all proud to call home.

This is critical because the Greater Racine community struggles with self-image & an undefined community-wide vision. The challenges we face adversely impact our ability to create a better future & stifles our capacity to innovate & grow.

The scope of our initiative is Racine County, east of the “I”: City of Racine and the Villages of Caledonia, Elmwood Park, Mt. Pleasant, North Bay, Sturtevant and Wind Point.

After over a year of visioning sessions in high schools, community centers, boardrooms and church basements, Visioning a Greater Racine now has a set of community-based goals for the future.

Our WAVE (Work, Action, Vision, Engagement) teams are taking on the wishes of Greater Racine as projects to complete in order to create a flourishing community we are all proud to call home.

• All sectors of the community, including business, government, education, non-profits, faith-based groups, and individuals • Various ethnic groups at many socio-economic levels • Residents living in the city of Racine and the villages of Sturtevant,Caledonia, and Mt. Pleasant (East of the Interstate)
OUTCOMES
The outcomes of the Vision will cover a wide range of initiatives that inspire a truly great place to live, work and play. Some of these initiatives are already underway but need broader support and some will be newly inspired; some are small and immediate, and others are long-term and comprehensive. Ultimately we will develop a community in which we and future generations thrive.
BACKGROUND
Many studies have featured Chattanooga, Tennessee, as one of the “best turn-around” stories in the nation. In the spring of 2015, a delegation from Racine visited Chattanooga to learn how its revitalization process got started. A visioning process in 1984 resulted in 34 goals that were fully or partially accomplished in 8 years. An initial investment of $793 million to accomplish those goals has resulted in over $5 billion of economic investments in recent years, including VW’s North American plant locating there in 2008.
