“Albert Einstein said, “Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.”
Earlier this year, the City of Ashton successfully applied for a community review by the Idaho Rural Partnership and other participating agencies.
Community reviews have energized community improvement and economic development efforts in over 40 rural Idaho communities since 2000.
Ashton Mayor Teddy Stronks said, “We want to find a way to grow and sustain our community without sacrificing the traditional identity that means so much to us.”
The first phase of the community review process consists of a survey of all households in the 83420 zip code and the listening sessions being conducted in Ashton October 14-16.
The survey asks residents to share their opinions on a range of topics including infrastructure and other community services, jobs, housing, and community involvement. Ashton area households will soon be receiving a postcard inviting them to complete the survey online. About one week later, survey forms will be sent by U.S. mail. All completed surveys need to be returned by November 5, 2018, to be included in the results.
Listening sessions will be conducted with the following stakeholder groups from Sunday, October 14 through Tuesday, October 16: Hispanic residents, Senior citizens, High school students, Social service provides & faith leaders, Teachers & School administrators, Ag/Business owners, and First responders & Law enforcement. People interested in participating in one of these listening sessions should contact Rachel Hatton at 208-652-0144 or [email protected].
All residents not participating in one of the stakeholder group listening sessions listed above are encouraged to attend a larger community-wide listening session at 6:30-8:00 pm on Monday, October 15 at the Henry’s Fork Foundation.
At a second community meeting on Tuesday, October 16 from 6:30 – 8:00 pm at North Fremont High School, the team of visiting professionals will present the preliminary results of the listening sessions and information about the next phase of the Ashton Community Review.
My goal is still the same, to concentrate on Economic Development in the Ashton Area. We will continue to do our best for the citizens of Ashton by following what General Collen Powell said, “There are no secrets to success. It comes from preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.”
So, keep up the good work! —Mayor Teddy Stronks
