At last week’s Council meeting, the City Council discussed the final draft of the 2021 – 2025 Strategic Plan and the path forward as we transition to execution.

The plan was developed using inputs from community and stakeholder focus groups, as well as community and staff surveys to identify the wants and needs expressed. The Mission and Vision in the new plan have been revised to reflect City’s aspiration and set a clear inspirational direction for the City and to guide the major objectives the City wants to attain.

A strategic planning method has been utilized to set clear, inspirational 5-Year objectives that have measurable, aspirational key results to align with success.

A Strategic Management process will be implemented allowing us to be more agile, transparent, and focused on achieving our 5-Year plan. This will include creating aligned 1-Year and Quarterly Department objectives and key results each year to achieve our plan.

Tracking progress on objectives and key results provides more transparency on where we are and where we need to go.
