The City is developing a Strategic Plan which will work in concert with the City’s Master Plan. The focus of the Master Plan is on land use while the Strategic Plan will focus on the operational issues of the City, as well as other issues outside of the scope of the Master Plan. The genesis of the Strategic Plan comes from the annual Outcomes & Work Plan (OWP) which is department-focused and developed by staff on an annual basis. The Strategic Plan will focus on key functional areas of the City government. The development and presentation of the OWP is currently the first step in the development of the annual City budget. By May 2023, the OWP will become part of the Strategic Plan which will be approved by the City Council on an annual basis.
