The following is a press release from the Spicer administration submitted to SOURCE media
FRAMINGHAM – The Spicer administration submitted Framingham’s first-ever community Long-Range Strategic Plan to the City Council.
The plan, called for by the City Charter, is intended to represent the community’s voice and guide the municipality’s overall approach to resources, needs, assets, and opportunities to ensure that Framingham moves forward deliberately and effectively to benefit everyone.
As part of the Long-range Strategic Plan, the City outlined a general schedule of activities for the next two years to continue gathering public input and developing components of the Strategic Plan.
Those activities include creating Mission, Vision, and Values statements that were not possible to work on with the proper public involvement during a year under a pandemic.
To develop the plan, the City gathered input from stakeholders:
• Strategic Initiatives and Financial Oversight Committee
• Division and Department Heads, and
• Residents via an online and paper survey (results of the survey are included in the plan) and a Zoom Community Meeting.
“Framingham’s Long-range Strategic Plan is not a document that will sit on a shelf,” said Mayor Yvonne M. Spicer. “It is an ongoing opportunity and platform for working together on a plan that guides our work and vision for the City.”
