Strategic Plan

City Council approved a citywide Strategic Plan on January 16, 2018.

The Strategic Plan articulates nine long-term goals for the City government, on behalf of the community and includes numerous priorities. Priorities are short term projects or programs which support a goal, where a significant phase of work is expected to be done by the end of a budget cycle.

Priorities are refreshed each budget cycle.


  • Create affordable housing and housing support services for our most vulnerable community members
  • Be a global leader in addressing climate change, advancing environmental justice, and protecting the environment
  • Champion and demonstrate social and racial equity
  • Provide an efficient and financially-healthy City government
  • Provide state-of-the-art, well-maintained infrastructure, amenities, and facilities
  • Foster a dynamic, sustainable, and locally-based economy
  • Create a resilient, safe, connected, and prepared City
  • Be a customer-focused organization that provides excellent, timely, easily-accessible service and information to the community
  • Attract and retain a talented and diverse City government workforce
