          This plan provides only a blue print for several new components and reorientations to the existing service delivery system.  Future plans will build on the base established in this plan.  Implementation is the now urgent.  Implementation is the most difficult stage of developing a community where residents help themselves and others and use social services when necessary to develop their maximum potential emotionally, intellectually, and socially.  Mayor Promptu, the Task Force, and a concerned group of citizens have led the way.  We must all become involved to implement this plan and continue to work for the mental health of all Arlin residents.
