The Strategic Plan provides a path forward that will facilitate a more resilient, equitable, sustainable, and prosperous Nassau County. A review of the County's foundational studies/documents identified four high-level strategic priorities that capture the overarching values, primary objectives, and substantive concerns of the greater community. These four priorities will shape decision making and provide guide-rails as we progress through an ever-evolving environment:
- Quality-of-Life & Quality-of-Place [Vibrancy]
- Environmental Stewardship & Resiliency
- Fiscal Stewardship & Economic Prosperity
- Governance & Leadership
It is with great excitement and expectation that I present Nassau County's first step towards adopting a strategic plan. While Nassau has maintained a Comprehensive Plan, a State mandated long-range planning document, the elements of local government that report directly to the Board of County Commissioners have never created an organizational strategic plan that sets a definable course, expectations, and fearless targets. The purpose of this document is to serve as an interim step towards the creation of a comprehensive 5-year strategic plan that charts a collective path forward in the shared-pursuit of the common good and creation of lasting public value.
NOTE: THIS DOCUMENT IS SCHEDULED FOR CONSIDERATION BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS AT THEIR MAY 18, 2022 MEETING.
