Thank you for visiting the Envision Initiative website

We’re ready to roll up our sleeves, get to work, and make a better future – together!

Over the course of the last few years, the Envision Fond du Lac planning process engaged hundreds of residents from all walks of life. The following pages recount the conversations had, strategies outlined and actions for next steps. The Envision Initiative is the implementation phase of the planning process.

The Envision Initiative is a multi-year community improvement effort spearheaded by a group of business, non-profit and community leaders with the hub organization being Envision Greater Fond du Lac, Inc.
