Hot Spring County Conversations Community Development VISTA
Hot Spring County Conversations (HSCC) is a future-focused, positive community development initiative. The initiative began in fall 2017 with the recognition that engaging county residents, planning for the future, and identifying new leadership opportunities was important for improving the county’s quality of life and economic development efforts. A County wide 10-year Strategic plan was developed from this initiative and unveiled in August of 2019. Our VISTA will advance action items from this strategic plan . The plan was developed through a volunteer, data driven, grassroots process. Five community groups held forums led by steering committees across the county . Citizens at these groups communicated the greatest needs of their local area and the County as a whole. Each community’s unique set of priorities guided its decisions and actions within the community. Data from these forums along with 2 County-wide forums resulted in the development of the strategic plan. Hot Spring County Judge, Dennis Thornton, is leading this process and will be directing the VISTA in their daily activities.
