Series of meetings concerning Leavenworth’s future planned

Breeden Memorial Library wants to hear from the community of Leavenworth.

The library recently received a grant from the Association of Rural & Small Libraries to support community conversations within the region, and anyone with an interest in Leavenworth and/or Crawford County is invited.

These meetings will be community-led discussions about how to promote economic and social growth in Leavenworth while maintaining its small-town charm and traditions.

A series of three community meetings to discuss how to balance reaching that potential while maintaining its small-town traditions will take place at the library.

Meetings dates and topics will be:

Wednesday, July 28, at 6 p.m. — Community Concerns. In this first chat, the community will come together to discuss their concerns, whether it be stagnation in the town or changes that progress may bring about.

Wednesday, Aug. 18, at 6 p.m. — Community Ideas. In the second gathering, participants will discuss ideas for bringing new businesses and tourism to the town to begin to promote progress.

Wednesday, Sept. 1, at 6 p.m. — Community Plans. As participants gather for a final time, they’ll discuss what plans can be made as a community in order to promote growth in the town while maintaining its small-town charm.
