Much has been accomplished and we are not done…

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 past Summer and early Fall, community and government leaders held several FoT meetings to collaboratively move the city’s strategic plan forward for the Future of Toledo, resulting in the Strategic Action Plan 2013 (http://tinyurl.com/CoT2013Strategy) with 14 Strategic Projects for 2013. On March 21st, we will meet again to build the teams around each of the projects, and move to action. View our strategic plan and projects below.
