Help create a bold, comprehensive plan for the growth and prosperity of Wabash County Communities!

We’re being left behind. Over the last four decades, Wabash County’s population has declined 14%. Meanwhile, the 11-county northeast Indiana region has grown more than 26%. Our decline in population threatens our education system, industry and job growth, property value and quality of life. Imagine One 85 is a unique opportunity! The process to create a bold, comprehensive plan for our future is all about our residents and unique communities, and requires the ideas of all—youth, adults and seniors alike—to succeed. Leaders from across all sectors need your input, insight and feedback to develop this plan. These workshops are fun, interactive and energizing. Please register to learn more and add your voice—and bring a friend!

Workshop Details

The Focus on the Future workshops are planned in communities across the county. In light of a COVID-19 spike and to preserve momentum for Imagine One 85 engagement events, in-person meetings have been rescheduled for the first week of March 2021 and planned in each of the county’s incorporated cities and towns. Make plans to attend one near you! Registration to attend is not required, but is appreciated.


If you would prefer to participate at an in-person event, these have been rescheduled to occur in the first week of March in locations across the county. All of the in-person meetings will follow the safety protocols laid out by the Indiana Department of Health including mask wearing, social distancing and other basic safety precautions. In-person meetings will last 90 minutes and include a mix of activities and sharing. Each meeting is identical and participants are encouraged to register for the even that is most convenient for them.
