Welcome to Vision Worthington’s community engagement portal. During this time of social distancing, this site will be the primary way our committee gains resident input and feedback to articulate a vision of Worthington’s future.  Your engagement is critical to the success of this initiative. City officials will use this carefully crafted vision to help make long-term strategic decisions and investments in our community.

The first thing you’ll want to do to participate through this portal is register.  You must be registered to engage in most of the surveys, polls and conversations throughout the site.  You can create an anonymous username, but registering allows the committee to connect numerous comments and feedback from the same person, giving everyone an equal voice.

Let’s take a quick tour through the portal to help you engage as efficiently and effectively as possible.  

The first section is Explore our Traditions.  Here, you’ll help the Visioning Committee identify things you don’t want to see change about Worthington over the next 20 years.  You can also discuss the values, services and programs you feel are foundational to keeping Worthington a great place to live and work.

Next, share with us how you Celebrate our Community. Tell us what you love about Worthington today.   Share pictures and your story about why you chose Worthington to make your home or build your business.

Third, we want you to get creative and help us Shape Our Future. What changes do you believe are necessary for Worthington to adapt to changing trends, expectations and demographics? Tell us what you wish we had, what we need more of, what we should aspire to become or what we should stop doing to thrive as a community.

And finally, Speak Out with your recommendations to make your vision of Worthington come to life. Map what you love, what can be better and what you wish Worthington had. Simply click on the pin and drag it to a location on the map and leave a comment about why you placed the pin where you did.

You can also ask questions and get answers to commonly asked questions, see an aggregate of what the Visioning Committee has heard so far and find upcoming events – most of which will be online.

If you want to better understand what visioning is, see Worthington’s resident-led approach or know who is part of our Visioning Committee, select What is Visioning at the top of the page.

Our goal is to develop a well-articulated vision of Worthington’s future that our residents endorse.

We hope you’ll take the opportunity to be a part of this ambitions and exciting endeavor. You can help shape the future of Worthington for future generations.  Register and engage with us now!
