Strategic Planning


Monday, February 6, 2023

5:30 pm following the Special Meeting

Hybrid Meeting


Strategic planning determines where an organization is going, how it's going to get there and measures success over time. It ensures the most effective use of the organization's limited resources by focusing resources on key priorities. The Council Strategic Planning committee will prioritize, in collaboration with the City's administration, the City’s goals, objectives and strategies and determine which initiatives take precedence for implementation, under three main objectives: Finance, Standards of Living and Economic Development


Committee Members: C. Daubert, C. Miller, M. Goodman-Hinnershitz, W. Butler, M. Ventura D. Reed
