Poulan -- What's your vision for the future, and where would you like to see your community in ten years? Worth County economic development leaders are asking those questions.

The Economic Development Authority, Chamber of Commerce, and Worth County Family Connection kicked off a county-wide project called Worth 2017.

They want to find out what changes people want to see throughout the county. They'll pass recommendations along to county leaders.

"We're going to try to inspire some folks to give us input into what they want to see the community look like in the next ten years. The beginning of building a comprehensive plan for the future," said Alex McCoy of the Worth County Economic Development Authority.

The next sessions will be held April 12 at Warwick City Hall, April 17 at Gordy New Bethel Baptist Church, and April 24 at the Worth County Community Center. Each on begins at 6:00PM.
