2014 Town Hall

Thousands of people seeking good music, tasty food and a sense of community filled Main Street and the Tom Hughes Civic Center Plaza during the June 10 Annual Vision Town Hall and Celebration on opening night of Tuesday Marketplace.

To showcase Hillsboro 2020 partners and action highlights, and encourage participation in Hillsboro 2035 planning, the Vision Implementation Committee created an “Amazing Race to Hillsboro’s Future” activity. After visiting visioning theme stations and submitting “idea cards” at the end of the circuit, Town Hall attendees earned their own Hillsboro 2035 T-shirt and were entered into a prize drawing. Over 230 individuals completed the task.

Other activities to promote Town Hall attendance included development and distribution of thematic posters (see image at right), a promotional video and new attractions including Limelight Open-Air Photo Booth and robot demonstrations by the Glencoe High School Robotics Team, Shockwave.
