City Council Adopts Strategic Plan

At Monday’s meeting, the City Council formalized initiatives related to the historic downtown, community building, communications, and effective and efficient planning for infrastructure through the adoption of a Strategic Plan.  The City Council, with the support of City staff, worked to develop the plan over a two day Strategic Planning and Goal Setting Session held on February 28 and March 1.  The Strategic Plan contains four major initiatives:

1) Create Opportunities in the Downtown

2) Fund Infrastructure

3) Foster Community

4) Refine Carver Identity 

Highlights of the plan include certifying the Carver levee system, identifying development and redevelopment opportunities in the historic downtown, creating a more user-friendly financial reporting tool for residents, and developing a more robust priority and rating system to plan for future infrastructure needs.  For the complete City of Carver Strategic Plan (click here).
