About the City's Strategic Planning and Visioning Process
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 will be followed by a planning session with the City Council and staff workshops in February. Community focus groups and meetings will be 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.
The strategic planning and visioning process includes various public meetings and community engagement activities. Planned meetings and engagement opportunities include:
February - March 2021: CivicMakers will host a series of focus groups and open community meetings to discuss the City's vision, mission and strategic priorities.
Tuesday, March 16, 2021: CivicMakers will facilitate a joint City Council and City staff workshop to review a draft of the City's vision, mission and strategic priorities as well as discuss potential projects.
Tuesday, April 27, 2021: The City Council will provide direction on a prioritized strategic project list.
