Decision Points

Within any visioning process certain transitions are arrived at which represent a milestone or critical juncture. These decision points may mark the end of a phase or the completion of a key activity, but commonly represent important opportunities to reach consensus on a vision product or outcome with partners and stakeholders. Decision points also provide important linkages to other processes, plans, or procedures. See the Visioning and Transportation section of this site for detailed descriptions of the importance, purpose, and linkages of these decision points.

Adopt Update Process: Establishing a process to revisit the vision provides an important future opportunity to readjust the vision to meet evolving priorities of the community. The final transition for any vision is the approval and adoption of a process to continually advance and maintain the relevance of the vision. An update process should establish a clear understanding of the responsibility, timeline, and scope for refreshing the vision. Vision update processes are often adopted as part of the final vision products, with the support and recognition of project partners.
