We are currently in the first phase of the planning process, Understand, during which we will collecting data on the city and insights from the community to create a baseline understanding of Quincy’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and challenges, as well as its goals and objectives. This phase will last through April 2017 and culminate with a public meeting, where members of the community will be able to hear about our findings and provide feedback on them.
