Project invites Adans to plan for community's future

Ada —  

Ada officials are asking residents to think about their vision for the community’s future.

The Ada Area Chamber of Commerce is teaming up with the Ada Jobs Foundation and City Hall for the “Take PART (Planning Ada Right ... Together)” project, which invites people to share their ideas for moving the city forward. The project is open to people from all walks of life, from teenagers to senior citizens.

“We want everybody to take part, from East Central to the Chickasaw Nation, from the city to the county,” said Sarah Jane Johnson, senior vice president of the Chamber of Commerce. “Community members — business community, industrial community. We want everybody there.”

The Edmond-based consultant Dana Shadid will coordinate the project, which will cost $10,000. The city will contribute $3,344 toward the cost of the project, and the Chamber and the Jobs Foundation will cover the rest.

A steering committee made up of community leaders is already in place, and the first public meeting will run from 5 to 7:30 p.m. May 9 at the Industrial Training Center, 601 W. 33rd St. Additional meetings are scheduled for May and June at the ITC, and the final meeting is set for July 11.

Organizers are hoping to attract at least 125 people to each meeting.
