BACKGROUND:

On September 9, 2005, the Board initiated the County’s FY 07 – FY10 strategic planning process.  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 the top strategic priorities for this time period. 

 

Since September, 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 to these work sessions, the Board provided guidance regarding the Master Plan schedule and the Rural Area Plan implementation strategic priorities on April 5.

 

Based on the Board’s guidance, a draft of the FY 07 – FY 10 Strategic Plan was prepared and presented to the Board in June.  The draft was also made available to the public and county staff for their review and comments.

 

STRATEGIC PLAN:

Adoption of the FY 07 – FY 10 Strategic Plan

  

DISCUSSION:

A summary of comments and suggestions received during the public review period are attached for the Board’s review and consideration. A Board meeting to receive additional public comment on one of the key strategies listed under Goal 4 to protect Rural Areas, the phasing and clustering of rural subdivisions, is scheduled for August 3rd.

 

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 2006 Retreat.  The information regarding this goal will be updated in the Strategic Plan document after the Retreat.

 

The FY 07 – FY 10 Strategic Plan is attached for the Board’s approval. Performance measures will be finalized and action plans will be developed by staff after the Strategic Plan has been approved.

  

Progress reports will be provided to the Board throughout the time period of the Plan.

 

The County’s Strategic Plan is not a static document. Beginning in fall 2007 and annually thereafter, the Board will review the County’s yearly progress, citizen input, and additional data, and will identify any new challenges and opportunities.  As necessary, the Board may adjust the Plan 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 the Board approves the FY 07 – FY10 Strategic Plan.
