The Forestville Planning Association (FPA) was formed at the close of the town meeting on September 14, 2002.
We are volunteers who stepped forward to begin addressing both the current issues and the vision for Forestville as identified by her citizens. Please join us and contribute to the future of our community!
We, the citizens of Forestville, California, have banded together to develop a consensus regarding the future of our community, and to articulate our vision of the future of our town.
We are united on the principle that decisions affecting Forestville must be made with the full involvement of the community and with the consent of the citizens.
Through an open, ongoing, inclusive process that includes town-wide meetings, small-group workshops, committees, and extensive public discussion, the Forestville Planning Association has facilitated the development of the following vision statement.
The vision statement is meant to reflect the sentiments of the citizens of Forestville. The starting point in its preparation was a town meeting of 130 residents, who attended in response to extensive newspaper notices and flyers posted around town.
During a four-hour collaborative meeting, views of all in attendance were solicited and recorded. Thereafter, numerous smaller meetings were held to draft this document and assure that it accurately describes the collective vision of those who live and/or work in Forestville.
Four months after the September 2002 meeting the FPA’s volunteer committees translated those citizen comments into a comprehensive Vision Statement about the future of Forestville.
