Comprehensive Plan Status Report

The Mount Vernon Comprehensive Plan Status Report has been prepared to highlight the progress and accomplishments of the process in preparing e a new comprehensive plan since the official start of this initiative in February 2009. 

Through the efforts of the City’s Department of Planning and Community Development in conjunction with the City’s Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee and community volunteers, opportunities were provided for public participation to help shape the contents of a new comprehensive plan for the city. This document imparts the insights and desires on the future growth and development of Mount Vernon as expressed during public meetings, at focused stakeholder sessions, and in the results of a communitywide survey.

These comments have guided the Department of Planning and Community Development in determining a number of strategies for the creation of a new comprehensive plan for Mount Vernon including the:
Selection of planning themes for the city;
Identification of planning intensity areas with the city;
Creation of specific actions to guide future development;
Organization of the components of the plan; and
Seeking of financial resources to complete the plan.

The ultimate goal in preparing this status report is to provide a guide for drafting the City’s new comprehensive plan by validating and expanding upon the range of physical planning goals and objectives which were identified by community at large to date in the most efficient and fiscally responsible manner.

This report is organized using the proposed outline for the contents of the City’s new comprehensive plan.  Each item will be explained through statements on their  purpose, conclusions reached, proposed actions identified, associated planning document references.

VFW-Chosen Health Plan

VFW Launches New Personalized Health-Savings Program

VFW chooses Veterans Care Plus, a Personalized Health Savings Program that includes access to lower cost prescription drugs and other health services, for its members and its auxiliary.

For over 100 years the success of the Veterans of Foreign Wars has been built on programs that improve the lives of Veterans, their families, and the communities they live and work in. After years of exploration and preparation, the VFW and its Ladies Auxiliary are now providing its 2.4 million members’ access to a Personalized Health Savings Program through Veterans Care Plus.

Veterans Care Plus is the first program of its kind developed for veterans by veterans, and is available to VFW and Ladies Auxiliary members nationwide. The VFW Personalized Health Savings Program offers a unique combination of wellness and discount savings programs for VFW and Ladies Auxiliary members. Enrollees can save up to 60% on prescription medications through two sources. One, through a Mail Order service from the comfort and safety of ones own home and two, members can also receive discount pricing on prescriptions medicines at over 56,000 retail drug stores throughout the United States.

To achieve even greater savings and health benefits, the program includes Dedicated Pharmacy Advocates (a team of clinical pharmacists) who will review medication and health profiles of members and then work directly with the members and their doctors to make therapeutic improvements and minimize out-of-pocket costs. The program also provides several wellness and disease management options for individuals touched by cancer, Alzheimer’s, heart and circulatory diseases, and diabetes.

The Veterans Care Plus program is not an insurance program and will not affect any member’s current coverage. Even for those that have health coverage through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Medicare Part D, TriCare, or private third party insurance, the Pharmacy Advocate and wellness and disease management components of Veterans Care Plus can generate health benefits and incremental out-of-pocket savings for all enrollees. Any Veteran or spouse of a Veteran can access Veterans Care Plus by calling 1-866-4VETSRX (1-866-483-8779) or visiting Members of the VFW and its Ladies Auxiliary can join at a reduced rate.

Proceeds of Veterans Care Plus support the VFW and its Ladies Auxiliary programs and services in addition to The Twilight Brigade, a national, not-for-profit group that is organized to provide social and care giver support to veterans and immediate family members.

For more information about Veterans Care Plus, please contact Randy Beaman, (615) 372-0313 ext. 16, or Richard Birmingham, (775) 220-6100.
