Envision Ford City is a community wide conversation to talk about what is good in Ford City and what YOU, the residents, property owners and community leaders want for the future of your community!

Community Conversations is NOT another meeting to talk about what is wrong or bad in the community. Nor is it another meeting to talk about some else's plan for Ford City. It IS about your family, your home, your business, your future, your vision, your ideas! We want to hear YOUR ideas, YOUR vision, for YOUR Ford City.

Please join us for any one of the sessions listed! All meetings are open to the public and ALL AGE are encouraged to attend. Refreshments will be provided and childcare is available at most locations.

There is a Brazilian proverb that says "when you dream alone, it remains just a dream. When you dream together, it is the beginning of a new reality." Please come and help us begin a new reality for Ford City!
