The Vision 2020 process began in fall 2011 with community members submitting over 4,000 ideas. The idea selection committee narrowed those to 91, and in December the public voted and narrowed the list to 30. The idea selection committee has been working since January on the 10 vision statements they will release at the Big Reveal.
