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. Although the live workshops have already been completed, you can still offer your feedback online.

Workshop Details

The Focus on the Future workshops were 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 were rescheduled for the first week of March 2021 and planned in each of the county’s incorporated cities and towns. Nearly 250 participants contributed more than 1,800 pieces of input. Stay tuned for a detailed summary of the findings from the first round of community engagement.
