The City of Smithville embarked upon a new strategic planning process in 2019. The City contracted Future iQ to guide a Community Vision and Strategic Action Plan process for the community.
The Community Vision will represent the whole community, reflect core community values address emerging trends and issues, imagine a preferred future, and promote local action. The Community Strategic Action Plan will direct efforts and resources toward a defined vision for the future employing a roadmap that is realistic, achievable and sustainable.
The visioning and strategic planning process aims to provide a response to the following questions:
- What should the City of Smithville become?
- What makes the City of Smithville unique and special and how can the City use these characteristics to prepare for the future?
- How will community stakeholder preferences fit into this vision?
