At 9:00 AM on Friday, August 13th, Johnson County Emergency Management & Homeland Security will be hosting a new Tips & Tricks Webinar on personal and family preparedness for all emergencies and disasters that might impact our community. There is no pre-registration required, but if you are interested simply bookmark the date, time, and this link.
To participate in this online webinar you will need speakers to listen to the presentation and a microphone to ask questions.
Johnson County’s 2030 Citizens Visioning Committee (CVC) is launching its first of three Online Community Workshops from Aug. 2-15 to seek input from local stakeholders and citizens on issues that should be included in the visioning process. This is a critical planning tool for County issues including emergency management and preparedness.
The Online Community Workshop will be accessible on the Citizens Visioning Committee’s website at www.jocovision2030.com. The website can be found though an icon on Johnson County’s main website at www.jocogov.org and from a link on the Office of the Johnson County Board of Commissioners’ webpage.
Issues generated by the Citizens Visioning Committee to-date will be presented as a starting point for consideration. Based on input received as part of the workshop, these issues will be confirmed and carried forward or flagged for additional discussion with the CVC.
Workshop participants will have two primary options for providing input:
Online Questionnaire — the questionnaire will walk participants through each topic, summarizing the range of issues that have been identified for each topic and asking participants to respond to two key questions.
Ideas Forum — this section of the workshop will offer participants a more informal means of providing input versus the Online Questionnaire. Upon entering the Ideas Forum, participants
will be able to post issues by topic that they think should be considered by the CVC as part of the visioning process. Issues will be viewable by topic and may be selected by other participants to help indicate general levels of support for different ideas by forum participants. Following the Aug. 2-15 workshop, input received will be synthesized, distributed to the CVC, and posted on the committee’s website.
The Citizens Visioning Committee is charged with ensuring a broad-based, inclusive process that incorporates and respects the voices of the full community. The process is expected to take a year, including public open houses and forums. Future public meetings/events will be posted on the new website along with announcing the dates of two future online workshops.
