What's Next Bradford? How can citizens contribute to the county's quality of life?


This issue guide developed for was written for Bradford County, Florida residents interested in deliberating choices regarding involvement in community planning and enhancement. The guide presents three areas to which residents can be actively engaged: relationship building, workforce development, and comprehensive planning. 

The overarching questions for deliberation:
   • What will it take for Starke and Bradford County residents to actively participate in local and regional democratic activity?
   • How can all residents feel welcome in community decision-making?
   • What will the impact of the new bypass be on the community?
   • What should we do? What actions should be taken?

This issue guide was developed for CIVIC, a collaborative between Florida Agricultual and Mechanical University and University of Florida. CIVIC is a new statewide Extension program that builds capacity for communities to work toward enhanced quality of life.
