Sept. 1, the group held their first meeting at Cherokee Village City Hall. Lynn Maxedon presented images of various locations in the city which were intended to bethought provoking in respect to ideas for the next 20 years in Cherokee Village. Some of the images included signs, Omaha Marina and other structures. The consensus of the committee was that many areas of the city are dated.
Some of the responsibilities of the five member committee include conducting a formal needs assessment, preparing a vision statement and creating a community blueprint.
Maxedon said the committee has established an e-mail account where area residents submit ideas that might benefit the city. However, Maxedon said only e-mails that include names will be considered. The e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
