You are invited to be a part of the action, as we move forward on exciting priorities for our city and region – priorities created through engaging citizens and leaders!

The Future of Toledo Initiative focuses on working together to build a better tomorrow, today. Over the last few months, we held four large-scale community meetings involving over 700 people and identified 14 Strategic Projects for 2013. Our next step is to move to action. On January 16th, we will meet again to form teams around each of the projects identified. View our strategic plan and projects below.
