The City of College Place, Washington finalized an update to its six-year Strategic Plan on June 22, 2021 so Goals & Objectives can be incorporated into the Fiscal Year 2022 Budget Proposal.
The previous adopted Strategic Plan was adopted via Ordinance #19-005 on February 12th, 2019.
The goal of the strategy sessions was to review, refine and verify the City's vision for the community. The Council began by identifying their shared values and vision for the community, defining what excellent leadership looks like, and discussing what they would like their legacy to be. Strategy sessions also included an environmental scan, looking at the City’s purpose, inputs, outcomes, feedback loops, etc.
The strategic planning sessions were a starting point to explore answers to important questions like:
- What kind of city do we want to be?
- What do we want for our future?
- What are the most pressing issues and challenges our community will face in the next ten years?
- What should our priorities be?
