Albemarle Board of Supervisors Adopt New Vision, Strategic Plan


The Albemarle County Board of Supervisors adopted a new vision statement and strategic plan at their May 2 meeting that sets the County’s priorities over the next five years. This plan includes seven goal statements accompanied by clear objectives that respond to community priorities.  The County’s Strategic Plan is anchored by a revised vision statement: A thriving County, anchored by a strong economy and excellent education system, that honors its rural heritage, scenic beauty and natural and historic resources while fostering attractive and vibrant communities.

The plan’s seven goals are as follows:

1. Provide excellent educational opportunities to all Albemarle County residents
2. Provide community facilities that meet existing and future needs
3. Encourage a diverse and vibrant local economy
4. Protect the County’s parks and its natural, scenic and historic resources in accordance with the County’s established growth management polices
5. Ensure the health and safety of the community
6. Promote individual responsibility and citizen ownership of community challenges
7. Promote a valued and responsive County workforce that ensures excellent customer service

The Vision Statement and Strategic Plan helps ensure that County efforts are purposefully designed and focused to meet the present and future needs of the County. Specific actions, programs, capital purchases, staffing requirements, and funding levels are developed in response to the needs identified in the Strategic Plan. Critical decisions regarding resource allocation during the budget process are evaluated for consistency with and support of the identified strategic priorities.

Regular updates on the plan’s progress will be provided to the Board and the public.
