In the Fiscal Year 2017 Annual Report, you can see a snapshot of the variety of accomplishments of the past year. Reflecting on the past shows us how far we have come and how nimble Region Nine has been to meet the region’s needs.
The purpose of Region Nine is to promote the development of the region. This is best done by addressing issues that face the region head on. For example, the It’s Time to Talk: Forums on Race that began this past year does just that. As mentioned in this report, these forums create dialogues that eventually can lead to more welcoming communities for diverse populations.
Looking forward, Region Nine will continue to provide programs, planning and assistance to meet the region’s changing needs. Thank you to our staff, commissioners, and partners who help make our successes possible.
