The City of Grants Pass would like to receive comments and suggestions from community groups and interested individuals on what they believe are the highest priority, most important things for the City to accomplish at the Strategic Planning Community Forum November 2, 2017, 6 pm in the City Council Chambers 101 NW A Street.
Strategic planning establishes a process for evaluating priorities and prioritizing goals to be accomplished over a given period of time. This is an important part of Council's strategic planning process. The strategic planning process does this by:
•Identifying the most important things for us to accomplish for our community.
•Establishing organizational responsibility and reasonable time frames for achieving them.
•Allocating the resources necessary for programs and projects to implement them.
Setting goals and priorities should drive the budget process, not follow it. This approach allows the City to better focus our organization-wide efforts and resources in ensuring that the most important, highest-priority objectives are accomplished, and that these high-priority objectives are communicated to the public.
