Alexandria City Council Releases 2010 Strategic Plan
For More Information
On June 22, the Alexandria City Council released its 2010 Strategic Plan, the result of a yearlong, citywide process to update the 2004 Strategic Plan, and to move the City forward in realizing the goals of the community.
The new Strategic Plan, while retaining the 2004 Council’s collective vision for the City, contains updated strategies that account for current economic challenges that Alexandria faces in delivering critical services to its residents. The plan contains goals, objectives, and outcomes measures in seven areas: transportation; children, youth and families; development; health and the environment; public safety; fiscal responsibility; and social and community services.
From October 2009 through January 2010, City Council member teams convened nearly 40 meetings, and videotaped and posted a majority of the meetings to the City’s website. For the first time, the City offered the public the opportunity to directly post comments to alexandriava.gov to discuss the strategic direction of the City. More than 500 people participated in the strategic planning discussions, with many more participating through the City’s website.
