VISTAs serve to implement the Master Plan in areas including parks and green spaces, safety, neighborhood engagement, and more. Member activities include engaging the community in thoughtful stakeholder dialogue, facilitating micro-projects, recruiting volunteers to support these efforts and developing media and communication tools to share the story of service.
