Can you collaborate with community?
Does it concern schools, jobs, or sense of place?
Is it strategic for the region?
Can WE move Macon forward?
Collaboration: The OneMacon Way!
OneMacon is made up of more than 40 organizations, and while they each have their own goals and objectives, they are all united in creating an energetic and opportune region where workforce thrives, sense of places is keen and education excels opportunity. It’s in this spirit of collaboration that egos are set aside, silos come down, sleeves are rolled up and the “OneMacon Way!” takes the lead towards a prosperous and engaged community.
With the implementation of the OneMacon plan, we believe:
- Macon’s economic vibrancy is based on the pillars of jobs, place and school –
with these pillars interdependently supporting each other to succeed.
- Macon supports a strong system of education that offers world-class
opportunities from pre-K to Ph.D.
- Macon emphasizes efforts to attract, retain and match people with jobs
throughout the region, creating a better quality of life for all.
- Macon instills a diverse sense of place with an active alliance of community
- Macon’s most recognized community success is collaboration.
Three Pillars of Community: the OneMacon Way!
I t’s more than a three-legged stool. Not only do Schools, Places and Jobs need each other, but what these pillars hold is Macon’s greatest investment: its people.
The strategic objectives of the OneMacon three pillars are being carried out through the implementation committees, in accordance with the comprehensive, community-driven master plan.
