Lane County adopts three-year strategic plan

The Board of County Commissioners voted unanimously to adopt a new strategic plan (2018-2021) that will focus the work of Lane County into four priority areas during the next three years: safe, healthy county; vibrant communities; robust infrastructure; and people and partnerships. 
To improve lives is the overall purpose behind the county’s work – from public health to transportation planning – identified during the creation of the strategic plan. 
“Lane County provides a wide array of services to the community,” said Lane County Board of Commissioners Chair Jay Bozievich. “Each resident, regardless of where in Lane County they live, is affected by the services we provide and we must be purposeful in how we allocate resources and the efforts of our staff. A three-year plan helps us make the most of our work.” 
The strategic plan identifies 13 key initiatives that fall under the priority areas, including:

• Increase housing options for residents to reduce homelessness and increase affordability.
• Maintain and enhance public safety funding and service delivery, focusing on outlying and rural areas.
• Enhance equity and access in service delivery and representation in governance. 

“We are very pleased that nearly 800 community members participated and helped us create this plan,” said County Administrator Steve Mokrohisky. “Over the next three years, every department and division in Lane County government will use this plan as the blueprint for their work and strive to serve Lane County residents with passion and with a focus on creating solutions.” 
The new strategic plan replaces the previous 2014-2017 plan and was developed with the help of Lane County community members and employees. More than 790 community members participated in an online survey and several attended a variety of focus group and open house events as the plan was developed.
