Strategic Plan


City leaders and staff rely on a strategic plan developed in 2005 to guide priorities and decisions. The strategic plan is based on recommendations by a 20-member task force that reviewed input collected through a survey, focus groups and town meetings. The plan was intended to serve as a guide for 15 years.
