Five-Year City Strategic Plan

A strategic plan is a vital tool for local jurisdictions to ensure that the priorities set by the City Council are conveyed in the organization’s goals, that strategies are clearly developed to meet the goals, and that overall city government is accountable to meeting community needs.

The City Council adopted its five-year strategic plan in October 2019, which included a renewed community vision, mission and values and five goals.

Goal B. Governance and Organization Effectiveness
Produce high-quality services to the community through a commitment to local government best practices and employee development, support and retention.

Goal C. Economic, Community Development and Public Safety

Implementation & Reporting

The City's implementation of the strategic plan will span over five years. Ensuring the strategic plan’s alignment with the City’s budget process, capital improvement plan, important policy decisions, economic development initiatives and public safety priorities will all be key measures of success.

The City will provide a report to the City Council twice a year on progress to achieve the plan.
