Public input process outlined for town’s Strategic Plan
June 2, 2014
After two work sessions to update the town’s 2014-16 strategic plan, Town Management Assistant Kelly Unger presented an updated draft of the document at the Windsor Town Board’s meeting on Monday and detailed the public process going forward.
The draft, as it was presented, includes the following statements about the town’s vision for the future:
» 1. Windsor’s home town feel fosters an energetic community spirit and pride that makes our town a special place in northern Colorado.
» 2. Windsor has a strong local economy with diverse business sectors that provide jobs and services for residents.
» 3. Windsor promotes quality development.
» 4. Windsor enjoys a friendly community with a vibrant downtown, housing opportunities, choices for leisure, cultural activities, recreation and mobility for all.
» 5. Windsor is a good environmental steward.
The draft also includes four broad goals for the town, which are: build community spirit and pride; promote Windsor as a destination; diversify, grow and strengthen the local economy; and develop and maintain effective infrastructure.
In the town’s plan, each goal is supported by more specific priorities underneath it, as well as an action plan of two to three items that the town can specifically accomplish in the next two to three years to work toward the goal.
Unger said town department heads will work through August to come up with specific action plan items for the newly revised goals.
Beginning in July, Unger said the town will create a community voice Web page to solicit comments about the plan from the public. She said board members may also hold town hall meetings in their districts to discuss the aspects of the plan and gather more public input.
Then, in September, all the information will come back before the board for possible changes or adoption.
