This strategic process is guided by a Steering Committee, which includes public and private sector representatives from multiple Jefferson City Area constituency groups. The Steering Committee’s role is to review reports, provide insights and feedback, participate in discussions about the future of the Jefferson City Area, and commit to the successful development and implementation of the Community and Economic Development Strategy. Their participation is invaluable to this process.

Throughout the effort, Market Street will consult with the Steering Committee to keep the process on track and verify identified key issues. The project includes regular Steering Committee meetings sequenced around the presentation of project deliverables in addition to outreach to the Committee via electronic surveys.
