Connecting the Bluegrass
Bluegrass Tomorrow’s vision statement and mantra is We Connect The Region. And, our mission is To Make the Region a Better Place To Live and Work. A non-profit 501c3 organization, Bluegrass Tomorrow seeks to enhance the quality of life in the Bluegrass Region by facilitating partnerships among public, private, and corporate citizens by building a foundation of cooperation. We work with city and county governments, regional organizations and key regional stakeholders to build partnerships around our key priorities in a truly collaborative manner. Our most recent success story is the development of the new Bluegrass Higher Education Consortium which includes the 12 colleges and universities in the region, led by the university presidents. In past years, we also created the Bluegrass Conservancy and initiated discussions about our current PDR program.
We are a coalition of business, education, farming, development, and preservation interests dedicated to developing a regional unified vision focusing on education, land use, job growth, and quality of life innovations for the central Bluegrass Region of Kentucky, which leads to an environment that develops creative talent and where young professionals and entrepreneurship thrive. At Bluegrass Tomorrow, we seek to unite the efforts of our 18- county footprint including: Anderson, Bourbon, Boyle, Clark, Estill, Fayette, Franklin, Garrard, Harrison, Jessamine, Lincoln, Madison, Mercer, Montgomery, Nicholas, Powell, Scott, and Woodford Counties. We work to achieve regional solutions that enable the central Bluegrass to build a strong and efficient economy which respects the tradition of livable and distinct communities, surrounded by beautiful greenbelts of productive farmland and rich natural areas. Simply put, we want the Bluegrass to be recognized not only locally, but nationally and internationally as a great place to live and work.
