[ARCHIVED] City Council to Adopt Savannah Forward Strategic Plan

For Immediate Release
Date: August 31, 2017

This afternoon Savannah City Council will vote to adopt Savannah Forward, the City’s strategic plan. The top five priorities set by Council are Public Safety, Infrastructure, Neighborhood Revitalization, Economic Strength and Poverty Reduction, and Good Government.

Earlier this year City Council contracted with consultant Managing Results, LLC, to work with the City to develop a seven-year strategic plan. The process included seven community meetings; five focus groups; 11 individual meetings with City Council, the City Manager, employees, and others; and a two-day City Council retreat.

High-level goals were established by Council for each priority. The City Manager then created a new organizational structure and budget process, aligning operations with resources and funding. Next step is finalizing action plans and developing detailed business plans for each of Savannah’s operations, establishing a clear road map to meet Council’s goals and make Savannah the best mid-sized city in America.
