(Kirksville, MO) — The City of Kirksville and the Kirksville Area Chamber of Commerce invites all residents of Kirksville and Adair County to attend a public open house on Tuesday, January 31 from 7 to 8 pm at the Kirksville R-III Middle School Commons. This open house will give citizens the opportunity to discuss the proposed 2012 Community Strategic Plan for Kirksville-Adair County.

By harnessing Kirksville’s current resources, assets and geographic location support, the plan attempts to set a direction for the Kirksville community based on common goals that will lead to citizen empowerment and economic opportunity. The newly proposed plan is a continuation of an ongoing commission created in 1993 to address a variety of areas including central business district, community betterment, economic development, housing, health and human services, recreation and leisure services, schools and education, telecommunication, tourism, and transportation, utilities and infrastructure. The proposed Kirksville-Adair County Community Strategic Plan can be viewed on the City’s website, www.kirksvillecity.com.
