With a determined resolve to honor the values and effort that have left us a proud and lasting legacy of heritage, culture and history, and with the idea that we owe the same stewardship and energy to future generations, we are launching the Vision Cle Elum effort.
Vision Cle Elum is being created to put our dreams to paper and then to life. Whatever Cle Elum faces, whatever Cle Elum chooses to be, whatever path we plan – all will be recognized and represented within this bold and comprehensive collaborative community vision process. Vision Cle Elum will incorporate the ideas and thoughtful conversation of our community members—your neighbors, colleagues and friends, business owners, community partners and advocates.
This vision is crucial to the long term success of our community, it will serve as a roadmap for success—success as we define it to be. Our core mission statement can be summarized:
“Cle Elum is a dynamic city where our citizens move in harmony from a deep pride in the past. We desire to see Cle Elum realize a bright future that is firmly rooted with the ideals of preserving our community, our forests, and natural resources; an unwavering commitment to a bright future with an expanded economy, a dynamic living experience enriched by world class cultural, recreational and educational opportunities that are available to all who choose to call Cle Elum home. Cle Elum is a City where individuals flourish, families grow, the economy thrives and guests long to return”.
The most crucial component to Vision Cle Elum is you! We encourage you and each organization, club, society, church, school and business to identify what areas of the vision speak to you and your ideas about our community. Each Vision strategy will require vision partners to bring that dream to life. So with that, we formally invite you to partner with us and help us accomplish this vital and important task. Collectively we can successfully implement a community strategic plan that actively directs our success and furthers our shared values for our community.
Success will neither be quick nor easy, and implementation will take years of unwavering commitment, patience and dedication, but we promise it will be worth the effort! Please join with us!
