FOCUS Elevates Citizen VoiceS through Visioning
FOCUS Greater Syracuse, Inc. is a community-wide visioning program created to make Syracuse a better place to live and work. Initiated by a group of interested residents, the program was loosely based on visioning projects conducted in different parts of the country.
The Visioning project aimed to determine a favorable direction for Syracuse’s growth and advancement. FOCUS’ Visioning program stands out from similar initiatives because the concepts were generated by the residents of Onondaga County, rather than those in positions of power.
FOCUS asked citizens what their dreams were for the future of our community.
