ValpoNEXT started in 2014 as a community-driven process to prepare the long-term Vision Plan for the City of Valparaiso. During a year-long planning process, a broad range of citizens thought creatively and acted boldly to create a plan that ensures Valpo will remain a leading place to live, work and play for decades to come.

Today ValpoNEXT is the name of the community-led nonprofit charged with keeping these aspirations alive and seeing the Vision Plan through.
