What is Visioning a Greater Racine?
Visioning a Greater Racine (VGR) is a 501c3 nonprofit, networked-community initiative using the proven VISIONING process with the goal of transforming Racine into a flourishing place we are all proud to call home.
Objective: Visioning a Greater Racine
By 2030, working together, we have created a flourishing community we are all proud to call home.
Case for Change
The greater Racine community struggles with self-image and an undefined community-wide vision which adversely impacts our ability to create a better future and stifles our capacity to innovate and grow.
Reason to Believe
To make this happen, a broad network of community members will work together to engage a proven process, called VISIONING. The VISIONING process has been successful in transforming other cities into vibrant places to work and live. To ensure success, Visioning a Greater Racine is being coached and mentored by leaders of two of these successes.
A Great Start
Visioning a Greater Racine is supported by Leadership of the City, County and villages. Visioning a Greater Racine is being guided by the VISIONING process, coached by successful Chattanooga VISIONING Leader Eleanor Cooper and mentored by the Transform Rockford Visioning Team. We receive support from the Racine Community Foundation and several leading financial institutions.
Our WAVE Teams are already making a positive difference in the community ranging from neighborhood clean-ups and mural projects to working with local government.
