County’s strategic plan survey closes March 15

Staff Reports

Douglas County residents have another week to offer input on the county’s strategic plan.

A survey located on the county website closes March 15, the day before commissioners are scheduled to discuss the issue.

The Strategic Plan is a roadmap that provides direction for the county and its board of commissioners.

County commissioners and staff met Feb. 6 to review survey feedback from residents and map out strategic priorities for the plan. Infrastructure, organizational sustainability, financial stability, economic vitality, safe community, natural resources, culture and quality of life were also categorized as priorities.

Douglas County staff and elected officials met again Feb. 28 to finalize the strategic plan draft. The draft plan will now go to the board for initial review and direction prior to beginning the FY 17/18 budget review process at the end of March.

The survey allows for the public to comment on each strategic priority and its initiatives. There is also an open section to provide additional feedback. Online public input will be considered prior to the finalization of the plan later in April.
