The City of Mountain View strategic planning and visioning process will result in a strategic roadmap that describes a vision of where the City strives to be in the next 3-to-5 years. The roadmap will also include a multi-year work plan that charts a thoughtful and achievable path forward to accomplish the community’s highest priorities. Community engagement is an important part of the strategic planning process.
The strategic planning and visioning process began in January 2021 with a discovery phase in which the City's consultant, CivicMakers gathered information about existing City efforts and learned about community stakeholders. This effort was followed by a planning session with the City Council and staff in February. Community focus groups and meetings were held in February and March.
The process will culminate in June, with the adoption of new vision and mission statements, strategic priorities (similar to the current Council Major Goals), and a focused and feasible set of key projects to accomplish them.
Over the past few months, City Council and staff have been working to develop a vision statement and strategic priorities with input gathered from community members. More details about previous community engagement efforts can be found below.
Now we want your feedback! We will collect feedback via a community survey that will run through May 26, 2021. We invite you to fill out this survey to assess how well the vision and strategic priorities match your hopes for the future of Mountain View. This survey also includes a few questions intended to inform the City's efforts to modernize the City's look and feel in its website design and navigation, logo, colors and more.
From February through early March, CivicMakers hosted a series of focus groups and open community meetings to discuss the City's vision, mission and strategic priorities. See the Community Engagement Summary here.
