What will Chattanooga look like in 20 years?

That was the focus of the Velocity 2040 conference Thursday morning.

County and city leaders joined the discussion, like Hamilton County School Superintendent Dr. Bryan Johnson and Hamilton County Mayor Jim Coppinger.

More than four thousand people responded to an online survey ranking the top five things they want to see as a top priority as the city moves forward.

They focused on ideas to improve Education, Infrastructure and Leadership.

"In 2040 we can imagine a place where we are the smartest city in the South, right? Where people who want jobs have clear pathways and direction to get there. They have access to learn and to those jobs," says Christy Gillenwater, President & CEO of Chattanooga's Chamber of Commerce.

A 5-year strategic plan based off the survey results will be created in the near future.
