Strategic Vision Plan

Strategic Vision Plan

The 2008 Strategic Vision Plan laid an important foundation by incorporating the five main goals chosen by citizens during the 2003 Vision Process, those goals being

  • Great Main Street and Town Center;
  • Greenways and Green Connections;
  • the Linear Park Downtown Connector Trail;
  • a Waterfront Restaurant with Docks;
  • and a Museum and Event Space 

However, the 2008 Vision Plan built upon the five areas of focus from 2003, by recommending 68 implementation plan goals.  The City and its partners accomplished 52 of these goals.  Other goals needed to be revisited, for example, due to changes in transportation plans or due to a community organization taking up a particular project. 

One can read more about these and other past implementation plan goals on Page 12 and 13 and in Appendix A of the 2018 Strategic Vision Plan.  Since the 2008 Vision Plan has been updated, it is no longer used as a basis for planning and land use considerations.  If you would like to have a digital copy of the 2008 Strategic Vision Plan for reference, please email
