Strategic Plan & Process Reports
Members of the 107th Session of the Wilmington City Council commenced the 2017-2021 Strategic Planning Process even before taking office, with discussions centering on the formulation of a document inspired by the needs of our residents, businesses, and visitors, as well as the responsibilities and interests of elected legislators.
In the 2017-2021 Strategic Planning Process, the Council took inventory of the most critical issues facing Wilmington and the tools available to address them. The Council worked to build a consensus to facilitate change in the ever-evolving City in ways that benefit the public. Although some things have changed since the 2017-2021 Strategic Plan was adopted, having a framework to guide the Council’s legislative, policy, and financial decision-making and inspire Council Members to action remains relevant.
During the regular meeting of the Wilmington City Council on December 1, 2022, the 108th Session of the Wilmington City Council adopted the 2022-2025 Strategic Plan of the Wilmington City Council by resolution 22-077, which can be seen by clicking here.
In addition to devising mission statements for the City Council and each of its committees, Council Members also identified a set of priorities to help guide future endeavors and actions undertaken by this legislative body.
These are comprehensive, and touch nearly every facet of City government and daily life in Wilmington
As the title implies, the Strategic Planning Process is not a single, defined effort – rather, it is a commitment to an organized manner of thinking and planning, and one which involves deep reflection and critical thinking.
In keeping with this understanding, this progress report – much like the Strategic Planning Process report itself – is a living document, and one which will be updated regularly as this session of City Council continues to work diligently and collectively to move Wilmington forward.
