2023 Strategic Plan
In July 2022, the City engaged the Northern Illinois University Center for Governmental Studies (NIU-CGS) to facilitate the process of updating the city’s strategic plan. The primary purpose of the strategic plan is to craft a vision and future direction for the city and the community it serves while focusing on where the city wants to go as an organization in both the short and long term. The strategic planning process included focus groups with the city’s internal and external stakeholders and interviews with the City’s administrative and elected leadership. The City’s senior staff and City Council developed eight short-term routine, six short-term complex, three long-term routine, and four long-term complex goals.
