Council Work Session 8/14/13

During the City Council work session, we had a great presentation by Resident Danny James, and Neighborhood Services Coordinator Rhetta McIff about the Azure Meadows Park renovation.

About a year ago Danny James, a resident who lives across the street from Azure Meadows Park, came to a Town Hall meeting to talk to city officials about the poor condition of the neighborhood park. He started an Azure Meadows Facebook page and got residents involved in lobbying the city for help.

Below is the presentation:

After the Azure Meadows Park report, City Administrator John Inch Morgan talked about the SWOT exercise. This exercise is to examine the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats to the city. City officials hope to get some answers to these questions:

What specific strategies can we employ to accomplish our goals? What are our strengths and how can we leverage them? What are our weaknesses and how can we address them? What opportunities can we take advantage of? What threats pose a risk to the well-being of the city?

Morgan hopes to get ideas from all the city committee members and finish the exercise in the next few months.

A resident, John Purvis, spoke to the council and said he was impressed with the SWOT analysis concept because it is something that has been done in business.
