Visioning & Strategic Planning

City Council Visioning & Strategic Planning

In 2016, the City Council began a visioning process aimed to formulate an organizational direction on the various areas of local governance. Among these areas are economic development and incentives, current and future planning, utility master planning, and growth. The end result of the effort was a new mission and values statement for the City, a list of goals and objectives, and the City's first Strategic Plan, which will help to focus our efforts and provide policy clarity to future decisions.

In 2017, the City Council formally adopted the Strategic Plan. Major focus areas include infrastructure, expansion, image, and amenities. The plan was subsequently updated in 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021 in advance of the City's annual budgeting process which started in March. It is the intent to update the plan each year, with major plan overhauls every four or five years.

The plan and its appendices are available online:
