Oak Lodge Water Services District
Oak Lodge Sanitary District (now Oak Lodge Water Services District) operates a wastewater treatment plant that discharges to the Willamette River. The District engaged Barney & Worth to update their Strategic Plan. The strategies and goals of the updated strategic plan are tied to the District’s budgeting process. The update began with a visioning workshop for the Board of Directors, and reshaping the District’s vision, mission, values, and goals. The results were shared with the management team for refinement. B&W facilitated a focus group discussion with local opinion leaders to ensure the strategies resonated with the most interested stakeholders.
B&W also developed a communications roll out for the plan that included presentations to neighborhood associations, business organizations, and environmental groups; newsletter articles and news releases; and a publication for customers.
