A committee of 50 leaders from around the community will lead the Envision Montgomery 2040 process forward. This group was intentionally selected to represent the wide range of interests and backgrounds present in Montgomery today. Over the course of the project, the Steering Committee will reach out the public to elicit ideas, gather support, and discover new leadership to guide plan implementation.
