  • Downtown Renovation.

  • Construction of the Public Safety Facility.
  • Putah Creek Improvements.
  • The process included presentations on key needs, outlines of priorities from stakeholders and a number of exercises to gain input and consensus on the direction the City should be taking to achieve many of the goals. Without question, the process was an enormous success and the results can be seen all around town. 2018: Staff is proposing that the City Council host a series of workshop on five topical areas with key stakeholders to begin establishing goals and priorities for each area, which can then be funneled into a comprehensive “Strategic Plan” which would cover the next 15-20 year period. Topical areas might include:
    • Planning and Economic Development.
    • Community Facilities and Services (parks, facilities and services).
    • Infrastructure (water, wastewater, streets, etc).
    • Public Safety.
    • City Organization and Structure (succession planning).
    Each topic will have an individual workshop to include City Council, Staff and Stakeholders in attendance. Projects and Priorities will be discussed, listed and ranked for each area. All meetings are open to the public and will be held in an open format. From the topical workshops, theses priorities would then be brought before the City Council in a two day strategic planning workshop coordinated by professional facilitators. Each of the stakeholders from the previous meetings will be invited to attend the workshop and participate in a more global look at all topics and asked to help participate in a consensus process. Day 2 of the workshop will afford the City Council the opportunity to provide direction on the final priorities and give directions to the City Staff. Stay tuned for the schedule as we move forward.]]>
