Atewologun will introduce Riverland’s latest plan for the future, “Strategic Vision: A Blueprint for Excellence.”

“The new plan is our response to meet the challenges and exceed the expectations of our communities and stakeholders,” a press release states.

It goes on to say Riverland is capable of “much more growth” by playing to its strengths.

A web page about the plan describes it as a five-year framework that calls for individual enterprise, collective thinking and collaboration.

“Our strategic planning process revealed four major industries that require our targeted efforts: agriculture, manufacturing, health care and entrepreneurship,” Atewologun wrote for the website. “Furthermore, some of our residents ask us to expand opportunities for them to complete baccalaureate degrees in engineering, liberal arts and the sciences as close to home as possible.”
