Strategic Priorities and Council Work Plan

About the City's Strategic Priorities and Council Work Plan

The City Council adopted the Strategic Roadmap Action Plan (also called the Council Work Plan) on June 22, 2021 following a six-month planning and visioning process. The roadmap describes a vision of where the City strives to be in the next 3-to-5 years with 7 strategic priorities to work toward that vision. It also includes a multi-year work plan that charts a thoughtful and achievable path forward to accomplish the community’s highest priorities.


A welcoming, vibrant city that plans intentionally and leads regionally to create livable, sustainable neighborhoods, access to nature and open spaces, and a strong innovation-driven local economy.

strategic planning and visioning process Overview

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. Public, City Council, and City staff input was used to shape a draft vision statement, strategic priorities, and potential projects, which the City Council considered in April. The City conducted a community survey to validate the draft strategic roadmap in May, and the City Council approved and officially adopted the roadmap in June.

Council will begin developing the FY 23-25 Strategic Roadmap in early 2023.

Strategic Priorities and Work Plan Implementation Progress

Every six months, the Council receives reports from the City Manager on the implementation of the Strategic Roadmap alongside the midyear budget update and the proposal of the budget for the new fiscal year. Council meeting materials from these updates are available below.
