A regional recovery and resiliency plan to help our communities THRIVE


Over the course of 18 months, Thrive West Central has worked diligently to develop a resiliency plan which addresses our region’s most pressing economic issues. Resilient is intended to serve as a guide for communities as they look to emerge from the pandemic and prepare for future economic crises.

Community Conversations

Thrive West Central is preparing for community conversations during its educational phase of Resilient. Resilient aims to combat regional challenges caused by the pandemic.

Throughout this educational phase of Resilient, Thrive West Central will be attending and presenting at council meetings, Chambers, Rotaries, and other community organizations to give comprehensive updates on the recovery plan and how the region can help implement it.

Meetings are open to the public.
