City Council Unanimously Adopts Strategic Plan

Grand Junction Strategic Plan 2017 Cover

On August 16, 2017, City Council unanimously adopted the City of Grand Junction Strategic Plan. The document, which was many months in the making, will serve as a guide for the City Council and City staff over the course of the next two years.

The Plan is based on two guiding principles: Partnership & Intergovernmental Relationships and Fiscal Responsibility.

The guiding principles lead to the four Strategic Directives of the Plan:

  • Public Safety
  • Planning & Infrastructure
  • Diversification of our Economic Base
  • Communication, Outreach & Engagement

Mayor Rick Taggart noted, “The City has been without a strategic plan for some time so this is a significant step forward for the entire organization. It will provide us a foundational road map for the next two years. I am very pleased with the collective work that went into this and I look forward to using it as a tool in our decision making and policy implementation.”

Each of the strategic directives is accompanied by a number of key initiatives, which involve specific actions, programs and ideas designed to bring about the realization of the strategic directives. The complete plan can be viewed here:
