Elkhart Vibrant Community agenda to be unveiled today

Residents in Elkhart were put to the test earlier this year when they were encouraged to think of ways to improve their county as part of the Vibrant Communities Initiative.

In the last several months, hundreds of people have contributed thousands of comments all geared towards strengthening their community.

According to our reporting partners at the Elkhart Truth, on Tuesday evening, a draft action agenda, full of proposals to improve the quality of place in each city and town in Elkhart county will be unveiled inside the Lerner Theatre’s Crystal Ballroom.

To help make the ideas inside that agenda a reality, the Elkhart Truth is reporting the Elkhart County Community Foundation and the visitors bureau are working to establish a $50,000 fund.

It’s unclear what’s exactly inside that agenda but over 500 Elkhart residents have worked together since February, and according to the Vibrant Elkhart County website, have come up with ideas like an IMAX theatre in Elkhart, more dog parks, and a community center for concerts in Goshen.

Doors open at 4 p.m. at the Lerner Theatre. The program starts at 5 p.m.
