Now is the time for action

— Action In Muskogee visioning process has proven to be a success by most measures.

The real measure of success comes next.

The AIM meetings — five in all — brought many people together who were interested in providing a map to Muskogee’s future.

There were hundreds of community-minded people who gave up their time to discuss the issues facing our community.

Meetings were held.

Priorities were set.

Now, comes the hard part.

AIM officials will wait to announce the top five priorities as determined during the meetings.

After those priorities are announced next month, the long process of success begins.

We are proud of our community — particularly those who gave of their time to help determine these priorities.

But, without actual action, these ideas will wither on the vine.

AIM needs volunteers to ensure the priorities are carried out to fruition.

This community, as great as it is, can be better.

It will take a concerted effort by concerned citizens to reach all our goals.

We would encourage anyone who participated in the meetings to continue to show their community activism by volunteering to carry out AIM’s vision.

With your help, AIM will be time very well spent.

Without your participation AIM will have missed its mark.
