Community Needs Are Discussed at Forums

Dozens of people come together on Western's campus to determine the most pressing needs of the community.

Sept. 13 marked the third of five forums designed to get community input for Western's new regional stewardship program.

Organizers say so far, the same community and regional issues are coming to the forefront.

"The things we've been hearing quite a bit of is education, access to education, infrastructure and transportation and social services--it's all bubbling up as common areas of need," Alive Center Director Katrina Phelps said.

Other forums have been held in Owensboro and Glasgow, and future forums are planned in Campbellsville and Elizabethtown.

Once the information is gathered, partnerships will be formed to address the top three or four priorities.
