Honoring our past while looking to our future
Vision 2020 began with ten people drinking coffee and kicking around ideas on how to promote the town and to encourage an increase in tourism. After several months of kitchen table conversations in October 2009, Vision 2020 held its first "official" meeting.
Vision 2020 was chartered March 26, 2010. In December of 2010, the group was accepted in the state-sponsored "Tennessee Downtowns" program. Red Boiling Springs was one of 12 communities selected to participate in this competitive community improvement program for cities and counties seeking to revitalize traditional commercial districts.
With a membership base of about 25 people, plus a ton of volunteers, Vision 2020 concentrates on enhancing the community through various projects and programs. These community volunteers are committed to protecting the deep rooted history of the town, preserving the stories of its citizens and historic structures, and enhancing the overall quality of life.
All decisions made by Vision 2020 Inc are run by the litmus test of: Is this good for the community?
Vision 2020 values openness and honesty with its members and the community of Red Boiling Springs. The members strive to do their best possible work with an attitude of generosity and caring.
Vision 2020 Inc meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month in the dining room of the Armour’s Hotel beginning at 7:00pm. The meetings are open to anyone interested in the work of the group. 2013 general membership meetings will be held: January 22nd; February 26th; March 26th; April 23rd; May 28th; June 25th; July 23rd; August 27th; September 24th; October 22nd; and November 26th.
