Alma aspires to be a community of choice, where families, seniors, students, employers, and tourists all choose Alma for its unique charm and community connectedness. Where, through a quality education and training system, economically diverse employer base and proximity to additional employment centers, everyone reaches their full potential.
From the days of its founding, Alma has benefited from thoughtful strategic planning. To this day, Alma is strengthened by the bold decisions by the community’s early leaders. Alma College, MidMichigan Medical Center-Gratiot, Masonic Pathways, the Opera House, historic downtown, strong public schools, and globally-relevant employer base are all a result of forward-thinking civic action.
Today, nearly 100 community members have come together to lead Alma into the future. Volunteers have signed on to lead actions in the areas of People, Place, and Prosperity. The plan details potential objectives for the community to explore as we look to make Alma all it can be.
