Pasco Commissioners last week approved a plan that outlines priorities for the county to pursue over the next five years.
The county’s 2013-17 strategic plan is a roadmap of sorts, meant to guide staff and commission actions toward specific goals.
The county has laid out four “strategic objectives” for the coming years. We’d like to know what Land O' Lakes residents think about them.
Here are the objectives, according to the county’s website:
- Create a Thriving Community: Proactively pursue opportunities with public and private partners for growth and redevelopment through integrated land use and long-range planning, while enhancing, managing and maintaining current resources, services and infrastructure.
- Enhance Quality of Life: Create a community people want to call home that provides and promotes safety and security; essential health and human services; social, cultural, and recreational opportunities; and preserves and protects natural resources.
- Stimulate Economic Growth: Support a sustainable increase in community income and investment, economic diversification, and expanded opportunities for all.
- Improve Organizational Performance: Provide the processes, procedures, and necessary resources (physical, human, and financial) to efficiently and effectively deliver services in a culture of continual improvement.
Do you think the county’s priorities are straight? Do you think Pasco can achieve its goals? What improvements would you like to see made between now and 2017? Share your thoughts in the comments section.
