LIVERPOOL Vision board members have met for the final time.
Mayor Joe Anderson praised the passion and commitment of its members which he said should be an “inspiration for all working for a better future for Liverpool”.
The board of eight private sector members and five from the public sector came together for a dinner at Liverpool Town Hall.
Mayor Anderson announced in July he would take control of Vision through his Mayoral Development Corporation (MDC).
Mayor Anderson said: “The success is all around us, from Liverpool One to the Waterfront and is a direct result of this organisation’s vision and professional expertise. Liverpool Vision holds a specific and unique place in Liverpool’s renaissance and the spirit and philosophy of its board members will live on through the new MDC and enterprise zones.
“I would like to offer my appreciation and great thanks to each and every member of the Liverpool Vision board past and present for their dedication and enthusiasm and for the professional way they have helped to lead the economic strategy of the city.
Chairman Mike Parker said: “Liverpool Vision itself was established at a crucial time and it allowed the private sector to become engaged and have an influence on spending and the city’s strategic direction.”
