Future Focused

Wecome to the County's Strategic Plan Dashboard!

The County’s Strategic Plan is the roadmap that provides guidance for the Board of Commissioners and County staff to work towards and meet the same goals and objectives as broken out into the following five priorities: Healthy & Safe Community, Transparent & Accountable Government, Culture & Recreation, Thriving Economy, and Sustainable & Development.


Each strategic priority is accompanied by more defined goals and objectives. County staff measure performance related to those goals and obectives each year. To view the County's goals, objectives, and performance measures, click on one of the five strategic priority tiles below.



A Brief History plus our Mission and Vision

In November 2018, management, Commissioners and staff began the newest strategic planning process. The process included both public and staff input on what community priorities should be. County staff presented the information collected to the Board of Commissioners for their input and priorities. The board adopted the strategic plan in December 2019, along with the following Mission and Vision:


Mission: Through visionary leadership and good stewardship, we will administer state requirements, ensure public safety, determine County needs and provide services that continually enhance quality of life.


Vision: Our vision for Cabarrus is a county in which our children learn, our citizens participate, our dreams matter, our families and neighbors thrive and our community prospers.
