BACKGROUND:

Since 2001, the Board of Supervisors has formally engaged in the County’s strategic planning. The Board adopted the County’s current FY07– FY10 Strategic Plan in July 2007 and directed staff to focus on enhancing the County’s quality of life, protecting its natural resources, managing growth, developing infrastructure, and creating a long-range, comprehensive funding strategy. 

 

Each year, the Board holds a strategic planning retreat to either begin a new strategic planning cycle or to make adjustments to the current plan to address emerging trends and challenges. These Board discussions also serve to inform and guide the long-range and annual operating budget processes that commence shortly thereafter.

 

At the fall 2008 retreat, the Board reviewed the County’s strategic performance and discussed emerging trends and the financial challenges facing the County. The Board made funding adjustments and extended the completion dates for three objectives.

 

 

STRATEGIC PLAN:

The Board’s Strategic Plan Work Session and the Annual Retreat

 

 

DISCUSSION:

The Board’s 2009 Strategic Plan Retreat will be held on October 16, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Department of Forestry facility in the Fontaine Research Park.

 

To ensure the Board has ample time for discussion at the Retreat, Lori Allshouse, Manager of Strategic Planning and Performance, will present highlights from the County’s annual Strategic Plan progress report, and Steve Allshouse, Coordinator of Research and Analysis, will highlight emerging trends included in the 2009 Community Profile at the October 7th Board meeting. The reports will be presented to the Board at this time.

 

 

BUDGET IMPACT:

The Strategic Plan provides direction for the County’s Five-Year Financial Plan processes and annual budget.

 

 

RECOMMENDATIONS:

This agenda item is intended to inform the Board of the County’s performance related to the Strategic Plan priorities and to review emerging trends in preparation for the October 16th Strategic Planning Retreat.  No action is required.
