What is Strategic Planning?
Strategic planning efforts are ways for communities to think holistically over a span of time, and focus on targeted areas or issues. Strategic plans are meant to be living documents and can be updated when necessary to continue to provide an accurate picture of the community’s goals.
How can SRDC help?

- Launching and conducting public input to ensure an equitable process
- Developing and facilitating planning sessions
- Developing, reviewing and updating strategic plans
- Working with elected officials, staff and commissions to understand goals and outcomes
