The City's Strategic Plan, including Strategic Initiatives and Strategic Goals, provides overall direction for carrying out the activities of the City, in order to best meet the needs of the people who live and work here.
Such a Citywide Strategic Plan aligns City Council priorities with financial resources and allows for a more informed and in-depth annual discussion of how best to achieve the desired results, on behalf of the community. The Strategic Plan is intended to be a living document and as such will be modified and improved over time.
Strategic Initiatives are high-level policy areas established by Council, and represent the areas of focus for the organization. They are generally reviewed every five years. The Strategic Initiatives serve as a guidance to help focus the City Council, Boards, Committees, and Commissions, and staff.
Strategic Goals support each of the Strategic Initiatives, providing the basis for each departments’ objectives and work plans over the course of the following 3 - 5 years. They describe the successful outcome that is desired. Strategic Goals may be revisited and/or confirmed at the Council’s Strategic Initiatives Update meeting annually.
