What is Strategic Planning?

Strategic planning is the process by which leaders of an organization, such as a local government, determine what it intends to be in the future and how it will get there. It involves developing a vision for the organization's future and determining the necessary goals, priorities, and action strategies to achieve that vision.

As the great Yogi Berra once said: 

"You’ve got to be very careful if you don’t know where you are going, because you might not get there" 

strategic plan serves as a community's roadmap and is used to prioritize initiatives, resources, goals, and department operations and projects. The strategic plan is a big-picture document directing efforts and resources toward a clearly defined vision.

Over the remainder of 2022, the Village will be undertaking a strategic planning process with the help of outside consultant, Rapp Consulting Group and facilitator, Cory Poris Plasch, to create a strategic plan for the Village. The first step will be resident and business input. We want to hear from you.  We need to hear from you!  Find out how you can provide input into the processes below!
