Over the past 18 months, residents of Akron and Westfield communities have participated in the Community Heart & Soul process, with more than 300 completed surveys and hundreds of conversations at events. Community members shared what they love about Akron and Westfield and what could make them even better. Volunteers reviewed every response and compiled a list of six Heart and Soul Statements.
Heart & Soul Statements are the distillation into clear, concise language of what matters most to residents. These statements help towns prioritize actions and guide future decisions, ensuring that the community’s heart and soul is strengthened and that the community grows more resilient.
