2022-2023 Strategic Priorities

The Portage 2025 Vision represents what the City of Portage and its communities strive to be. Strategy Deployment works from that end state and determines how to arrive at the vision. Strategy links the destination of the vision to current capabilities. It is crucial to prioritize projects to be both ambitious and yet fiscally responsible.


The Portage City Council helped to define strategic priorities for the 2022-2023 Fiscal Year based on current capabilities, along with citizen expectations. The strategic priorities guide budget decisions and also serve as a reference for 3-5 year objectives and annual performance goals for the city and its departments.
