For Immediate Release – January 15, 2015


What: Community Listening and Design Session Thursday, February 19, 2015

Where: Civic Center, 205 North Columbia Avenue, Campbellsville, Kentucky  

Time:     6:00 – 8:00 p.m.

What if everyone in Campbellsville was invited to share their ideas about our community’s future, and they all showed up?

The mayor and members of the Campbellsville City Council want to make this dream a reality. They invite you to work with them to establish a shared vision, priorities and strategies for the future of Campbellsville.  What makes this initiative so important is that everyone in the community is invited to get involved.

What’s a Community Listening and Design Session?

Listening and design sessions give local residents an opportunity to voice their opinions and concerns about the future of the community. Additionally, citizens can visualize their ideas with maps, pictures and markers, showing one another their ideas for the future of Campbellsville.  The listening session gives the citizens of Campbellsville a voice on what they want for their families, businesses and future.

During this session, the leadership of the community intentionally becomes the audience. They put aside expectations about what they think they should hear and instead focus on what citizens are actually saying. As a result, community leaders will have an opportunity to gain valuable information they might not hear in any other context. Listening sessions are convened for many reasons, particularly to hear from citizens about:

  • sharing their ideas, suggestions, and  concerns;
  • voicing their opinions and discussing the possibilities;
  • choosing priorities; and
  • taking action on those ideas and priorities for the betterment of the community’s future.

This initiative is funded by the City of Campbellsville. The initiative is being led by professional development advisors from the Kentucky League of Cities (KLC).  The Community Listening and Design Session will be collaborative and transparent.  For more information, call Natalie Fox at Campbellsville City Hall at 270-465-7011 or email her at nfox@campbellsville.us.
