ST. CLOUD - Today, a handful of local organizations got the chance to showcase their accomplishments over the last year during the second annual "Greater St. Cloud Community Priorities Forum," held at the Holiday Inn and Suites.

Representatives from 10 different community projects delivered presentations on the kind of work they've been doing in the last year.

Barb Carlson is a forum organizer from the Central MN Community Foundation. She says the information presented today demonstrates strong community growth, made possible by effective project management and carefully measured results.

Carlson says one example of a project met with great success over the last year has been the plan to develop the Mississippi Riverfront.

The ten projects highlighted were voted on from last year's list of around 200.
