The Norton County Community Foundation is dedicated to improving the quality of living for area residents now and forever. Therefore, we value our role in the Strategic Doing process.
For the fifth consecutive year, Norton County has received money from the Dane G. Hansen Foundation for Strategic Doing. This process allows community members to share their goals for the county, form groups, and take action on specific initiatives.
In the past, plans have been designed to meet goals in different areas, including Business Development, Housing, and Travel & Tourism. Examples of projects that were supported through this process include the PRIDE revitalization project in Lenora, playground equipment at Eisenhower Elementary School in Norton, and the development of the Almena Farmers Market.
The 2019 Strategic Doing process began with an initial planning session on July 17th and a follow-up session on August 19th. If you are interested in learning about the projects being pursued and/or joining a committee, please contact at us 785-874-5106.
Sept. 2017: TRAVELING KANSAS is a local production from Smoky Hills Public Television that highlights communities, people and attractions across the state.
