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.

Approve Goals: Reaching consensus on community goals is a key milestone in a visioning process and substantially informs many future activities. Approval of goal statements by stakeholders or sponsors provides an early opportunity to establish a shared identity, to create a sense of purpose for the vision, or to identify common values. Goal statements are important outcomes that are continually transferred through the visioning process and utilized as inputs to the planning efforts of partners.
