Our community is a great place to live, work, play and raise a family! The Stronger Together: Akron and Westfield Heart & Soul program is designed to identify what we all love, and chart a course to an even brighter future.
Community Heart & Soul is a resident-driven process that engages all community members in identifying what they love most about their community, what future they want for it, and how to achieve it.
Developed and field-tested over a decade in partnership with over 90 small cities and towns across America, Community Heart & Soul is a proven process for engaging a community in shaping its future. Learn about the Community Heart & Soul process and watch a video from program founder Lyman Orton.
We're excited to bring this tested process to Akron and Westfield to celebrate our communities and build a stronger future...together!
