Visioning Apopka Community Forums Schedule

Citizens are invited to attend a community forum to provide their input regarding the future of Apopka. There will be four forums. Each forum will follow the same format, but are being positioned at different locations in order to make attending more convenient.

Using trained facilitators, attendees will be presented information and trends about Apopka. This will include factors such as population, the number and types of businesses, availability of public services, and employment opportunities. Residents will also be provided a scenario, based on policy documents–such as the Comprehensive Plan, economic development studies, building permits, and site plan approvals–that presents Apopka in 10 years if no changes are made. This information will help residents to answer two key questions in the visioning process: “Where Are We Now?” and “Where Are We Going?”

The recommendations will be prioritized by residents.The recommendations and prioritizations will represents citizens’ response to two other critical questions in the visioning process: “Where Do We Want to Go?” and “How Do We Get There?”
