Municipal Elected Officials Institute of Government Monthly Quiz

True or False: Once a strategic plan is prepared and adopted, the city or town council’s work on the plan is done.

Answer: False.

A strategic plan is a collaborative process used to develop a road map for a city’s future vision and the goals, priorities and actions necessary to achieve that vision. Steps in the process include community input, plan development, implementation and monitoring. Council should be involved throughout the process and use the plan to guide policy decisions and the allocation of resources to advance the plan’s goals.
