Christian County Cares 2015 is moving into the third phase of the Community Vision Plan, hosting forums welcoming community input for ways to improve the Christian County/Hopkinsville area. Tracy Ross speaks with Yasamin Ausenbaugh, Christian County Chamber of Commerce Vice President of Community Affairs about Phase 3 and how community members can get involved.

Christian County Cares 2015 works towards promoting a dynamic and growing business community, with educational opportunities and and overall improvement of quality of life. 

Phase 1: The first phase between 2005 to 2010 focused on getting organized, bringing in an outside research firm to analyze what needed to be done for growth.

Phase 2: From 2010 to mid-2014, projects identified in Phase 1 beginning to be developed, such as Rail to Trail, Hopkinsville Greenway System (officially opening soon), signs around town and momentum into local education system. 

Phase 3: "Renewing the Vision" - Community forums kick off August 12, 2014. In this phase, community forums will take place around Christian County seeking input form the community for future projects.

"Our community will only be as great as the people who are here and we need to know what the people want us to do for the community."
