BACKGROUND:

On September 9, 2005, the Board initiated the County’s FY 07 – FY10 strategic plan.  The Board 1) reviewed the County’s Vision and Mission statements, 2) identified five goals for inclusion in the FY 07 – FY 10 Strategic Plan, and 3) identified and voted on top priorities for this time period. 

 

On November 2, 2005, the Board reviewed the results of the retreat and made several suggestions to clarify further their priorities for staff.  On December 6, the Board received an updated Executive Summary that included the recommendations made by the Board during their November 2nd meeting.

 

During the past four months, the Board held five work sessions to provide additional analysis on the priority issues and to give more specific direction to staff, as necessary. The purpose of these efforts was to make the FY 07 – FY 10 Strategic Plan statements clear, actionable, and results-oriented in order to best focus and drive staff’s strategic efforts in the years ahead. In addition, the Board provided guidance regarding the Master Plan schedule and the Rural Area Plan Implementation strategic priorities as part of the Community Development Department’s work plan work session on April 5.

 

STRATEGIC PLAN:

Development of the FY 07 – FY 10 Strategic Plan

  

DISCUSSION:

Based on the Board’s guidance, a draft of the FY 07 – FY 10 strategic plan has been completed and is attached for the Board’s review.  The draft will be available to the public and county staff for their review and comments.  The final draft, including a summary of comments and suggestions, will be presented to the Board for consideration at the July 5th Board meeting.  Performance measures will be finalized and detailed action plans will be developed by staff after the plan has been approved.

 

The Board’s strategic goal “to develop a comprehensive funding strategy to address the County’s growing needs” will be the basis of the Board’s September Strategic Planning Retreat.

 

The County’s strategic plan is not a static document. Each year the Board will review its progress and identify any new challenges and opportunities. As necessary, the Board may adjust its efforts to ensure the County reaches its goals and achieves its vision.

 

BUDGET IMPACT:

The County’s strategic plan provides direction to the County during the budget cycle.

 

 RECOMMENDATIONS:

Staff requests Board members review the draft FY 07 – FY 10 Strategic Plan and provide comments and suggestions for improvements to Lori Allshouse, Strategic Management Coordinator. lallshouse@albemarle.org. These comments will be used to prepare a final draft to be considered by the Board at the July 5, 2006 Board meeting.
