Dream Big Community Forums

Join us at one of our upcoming town-hall-style events designed to listen to as many voices in the county as possible! The volunteers of The Clinton County Initiative invite all youth and adult residents to attend any of the Dream Big Community Forums that are being held in communities across the county. WHY?

  • Learn what The Clinton County Initiative is all about, why it formed, and how it can help you.
  • Share your input on living, learning, working, and playing in the county.
  • Help sort priorities from the Dream Big Survey into take-action projects. Your voice matters!

We were in Cameron in February, Gower in March, and will be heading to Plattsburg in April, Trimble in May, and Lathrop in June! See the flyer on this page for more information!

The group is working through the first milestones of The Maximize [My Community] Journey Framework getting to know our county's current story; envisioning a new story that respects what people most want to keep while working on maximizing our potential; and then, taking action together to create the agreed-upon new story for our county. Come help us figure out what puts our place on the map!

At the Cameron gathering, we also had the added bonus of a featured guest speaker from the University of Missouri, Kathy Kiely, talking about "Making the Most of Broadband."

MISSION

As The Clinton County Initiative, we come together to create a growing economy, an inclusive and diverse countywide community, and a vibrant learning environment as the building blocks of a great rural life.

WHO WE ARE

The Clinton County Initiative is a group that grows each month to include leaders from all communities and rural corners of our 420 square miles located just north of Kansas City, Missouri. People from every sector, interest group, and industry are welcome to get involved. We are entrepreneurs, educators, farmers, lawyers, property owners, artists, lawyers, bankers, elected officials, and more! We're coming together as many voices in a manner unlike any other time to work towards one vision...to maximize our collective potential. We understand that each individual community is unique and special, and together we offer people a wonderful county to live, learn, earn, and play that has access to everything from water sports to wildlife and starry nights to city lights.

MANIFESTO

Our goal is to make Clinton County a great rural place to live with a vibrant future and a proud past.

We understand that a well-lived life includes economic opportunity and much more. It is the ability to enjoy natural surroundings, form close bonds with our neighbors, and raise our families in the environment of our choosing. A well-lived life requires reliable health care and convenient shopping. It is arts and culture. And it is small-town friendliness.

But we also understand that lifelong learning and sustainable jobs are essential to achieve larger goals. Therefore, the Clinton County Initiative envisions a county that will grow existing businesses and encourage new enterprises to relocate here.

In an era when we can welcome a virtual world into our homes through broadband internet, we envision a county of telecommuting as well as brick-and-mortar businesses. Such a county will offer local goods and services to its citizens while also accessing all there is to offer online.
