Visionary Leadership

In order to bring the vision of the project to life, the community must continue to recruit leaders who can move the community forward, while keeping in mind that as times change, and new opportunities arise, the plan may need to be adapted. 

“Newtonians will need to keep looking for leaders who are dedicated to the vision, and who are willing to walk that fine line between investing in the community and keeping taxes affordable,” said Tom Phillips, who in addition to his career as a planning professional has served as an elected official in Manhattan. “But finding that balance is key to growth, and it is key to creating a city people will want to live in.”
