Vancouver Strategic Plan

Vancouver Strategic Plan
Barney & Worth worked with the City of Vancouver, WA to develop What’s Next Vancouver? Envisioning Our City’s Future – a community-wide strategic plan, based on a framework set by the City Council in 2014. The process included a community survey to identify what people like and want to see improved in the City. Over 2,000 people participated in the survey. The information from the community survey framed focus areas to highlight in the strategic plan. A key element of the creation of the action plan was a partner forum at which community partners (public agencies, non-profits and business leaders) came together to identify how their priorities align with the City priorities and identify the roles the partners can play in implementation of the strategic plan. The partner forum as well as several internal management workshops identified action items for the strategic plan. Ten goals and accompanying objectives and actions for implementation were identified for inclusion in the final strategic plan which will inform the City’s direction through 2020. A Council retreat in January 2016 initiated the implementation phase of What’s Next Vancouver?
