How was this plan developed?
In March 2022, the city commission and city staff met for about a day and a half to set the strategic plan priorities and objectives for the next few years. Staff contributed in the following weeks to refine the plan with action steps that they felt fit into the plan and would be work they could accomplish between 2022-2025. This was approved mid-2022 to guide the work done for the city in the years ahead.
