We have challenges.

The communities of Wabash County are facing challenges that will impact our future.

With every challenge comes opportunity.

Our challenges are not our destiny. Imagining a bold, comprehensive plan for the future is the best possible way to arrest—and reverse—our population decline.

Introduction

The Community Foundation of Wabash County and Grow Wabash County are calling on the citizens of Wabash County to address the steady and alarming decline in population that threatens school funding, industry and job growth, economic development and competitive wages, the availability of retail and professional services, and the value of our homes.
A coalition of leaders from all sectors are joining in an unprecedented countywide collaboration called Imagine One 85. Together, we will develop a bold, comprehensive plan for the growth and prosperity of the entire county, and the incorporated communities of La Fontaine, Lagro, Manchester, Roann and Wabash.
While Northeast Indiana’s 11-county region has consistently grown for four decades, Wabash County has not. Imagining a bold, comprehensive plan for the future is the best possible way to arrest—and reverse—our population decline. All who care about the future of the communities of Wabash County are encouraged to join us in this important work.
