Here is the text of the vision:
The ABCV Plan (A Better Cherokee Village Plan) or just, The Plan, provides a Community Blueprint aimed at addressing pertinent issues for the next 20 years. The purpose of The Plan is to present a development plan in accordance with the needs expressed by Cherokee Village (CV) citizens and to providecommunity input to the city government and Suburban Improvement District, SID. It is intended that this plan will remain flexible and change to meet new challenges and conditions. The Plan was prepared by the ABCV Steering Committee which was formed to develop a common vision for the future of Cherokee Village by doing the following tasks:
• Conduct a Formal Needs Assessment
• Prepare a Vision Statement
• Create a Community Blueprint
Starting in 1954, John Cooper designed CV as a community with major characteristics of
1) A vacation destination
2) A retirement village
3) A second home location
The city is proud of its heritage as one of our nation’s first recreational and retirement communities and its
entrepreneurial developer, John Cooper. Mr. Cooper was the visionary for the over 24,000 lots and amenities of CV and through his business, Cooper Communities, he had the resources to accomplish his vision. Upon substantial completion of CV, Cooper Communities deeded all the amenities to the SID. SID is responsible for the seven lakes, two golf courses, tennis courts, a number of city parks, two recreation buildings with their swimming pools, miniature golf, playgrounds, meeting rooms and one has a 500 seat auditorium. CV incorporated as a city in 1999.
CV is located in NE Arkansas, 20 miles south of Missouri, on US 62/412. CV is a quiet and peaceful green community with natural scenic beauty, quality lakes, and lush woodlands in the Ozark foothills.
