Vision 2030 is sponsored by the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce but most importantly; it’s a community project! In 2005, the project started to provide a common vision for what Gainesville and Hall County would look like in the year 2030. Over many meetings with hundreds of diverse citizens, 4,000 ideas, images and recommendations were recorded. The common goal was to have a stronger workforce, exceptional quality of life, and a thriving economy. From that, the Big Ideas were drafted as a strategic way to accomplish the goals or common vision.
