The Steering Committee has found the following items to be important to our future:

Goals for Community

  1. More volunteer community leaders are needed
  2. Safety and security – sidewalks, lighting and traffic control
  3. Recreation and tourism growth would be good for Centreville
  4. Facilities for youth and adults, particularly for winter use
  5. Communication among community groups and residents
  6. Community spirit and pride
  7. Economic development funding

General concluding statements of the Steering Committee members:

  1. Centreville is a designated growth area that has no official voice as a community
  2. The community of Centreville should have a say in how it grows and develops
  3. We need to get organized
  4. We should form a non-profit, registered Community Development Association that would have access to funding sources

This association would NOT replace existing community groups or organizations.
The purpose of the association would be to allow all residents and groups of Centreville to have a voice in their community.
The association would act as an umbrella over the community and its groups to aide the groups to achieve their own goals, as well as general community goals.
