Why do we need a Strategic Plan?
Our county, like any other successful business needs a set of goals and a written plan of action to achieve these goals. Strategic planning provides an opportunity for our county and civic leaders to identify areas of need, to suggest possible courses of action, and allocate resources.
The Strategic Plan is divided into several action areas that each identify specific goals derived from an analysis of needs and observations, strategies to achieve these goals, and an estimated timeline for completion.
Once completed, the strategic planing document serves as a roadmap that individual action groups may follow as they begin the process of “Strategic Doing” which puts the plans into action. In addition, a strategic plan helps our county and entities within our county to identify and pursue the various state programs and grants available to help reach our goals and grow our county.
