Geauga Community Impact Plans Citizen’s Convention

The Geauga Community Impact (GCI) is planning a Citizen’s Convention, which will be held on Saturday, May 14, 2005 from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm at West Geauga Middle School, located at 8611 Cedar Road, Chesterland. Geauga County residents are encouraged to attend.

Participants at the convention will learn the results from the comprehensive health and human services study that has been completed and provide initial input into a priority setting method for the issues identified. In addition, participants will be engaged in a process that will work to set a long-range vision for the health and human service system in Geauga County. “There is no doubt that this event is critical to the future planning of health and human services in Geauga County and it is vital that we know and clearly understand what is important to the residents of Geauga County,” according to Kimm Leininger, GCI project director.

After the convention, members of the steering committee will review all available data before beginning the final prioritization of issues. This leadership group will then proceed with developing a plan for the future that will lead to specific actions and measurable results.

GCI is a collaborative initiative with The Cleveland Foundation’s Lake-Geauga Fund, Geauga County Department on Aging, Geauga County Mental Health and Recovery Services Board, Geauga County Department of Job and Family Services, Geauga Family First Council and United Way Services of Geauga County. William Conway, chairman of Fairmount Minerals, LTD, is leading the project. “Geauga County is changing and we must determine the health and human service needs of our community to ensure we can address them effectively,” Conway said.

Participants will receive a complimentary breakfast and lunch. If you would like to attend the Citizen’s Convention or for more information, please contact Kimm Leininger at 440-285-8097.
