Strategic Planning

A consultant was engaged in January 2017 to facilitate a strategic planning process. The Mayor and City Council held a workshop in January 2017 to identify high priority goals for the next four years and set strategies to provide direction for City governance. The Mayor and City Council adopted the 2017-2021 Strategic Plan on May 15, 2017. 

In February 2019, the Mayor and City Council engaged in a workshop to review progress updates for the 2017 Strategic Plan, receive analysis and feedback from the 2018 resident survey, and identify new priorities for the next two years (through the end of FY 2020-21).  The Mayor and City Council identified sixteen new priorities.  These priorities and their rankings, as well as updates to the existing action items can be found in the 2019 Strategic Plan Update.
