Back in May 1999 Olmsted County led the formation of a 21st Century Partnership to research and propose what it would take for Olmsted County to be a leader in the 21st Century. This document attempts to brings back that information for re-use.

 

The 21st Century Partnership Strategic Plan for Diversity was developed as a direct result of a county-wide long-range planning project designed to help prepare Olmsted County for the 21st century.  The project was initiated in September 1996 with the enthusiastic support of local government, area businesses and many other community organizations. The process involved a broad cross section of over 800 county residents, and resulted in the identification of seven key issues that must be addressed to ensure the continued economic and social success of the region. The seven key issues include:

  • Crime
  • Neighborhoods
  • Diversity
  • Rural and Small City Vitality
  • Education and Workforce Readiness
  • Jobs and the Economy, and
  • Youth, Families and the Elderly.

Task forces researched each of these issues and reported their findings and recommendations to the community in May 1999.

 

The Strategic Plan for Diversity implements one of the recommendations made by the Diversity Task Force and outlines specific goals and strategies designed to create a welcoming environment in Olmsted County. As community members we are all responsible for on-going implementation of this Plan, and the Rochester-Olmsted Planning Department will assist by coordinating the data to measure our progress. Success will require a continuing commitment to the social and economic value of diversity, and a steadfast determination to build and nurture a community that welcomes all people.
