In 2015, City Council developed a strategic plan using significant input from residents that re-affirmed the City’s mission, values and goals. In 2018, the action plan was updated and goals were further developed, focusing on City Finances, Economic and Community Development, Public Safety and Stormwater Management. This plan helps us create an effective City government that focuses on improving the lives of Elmhurst residents and business owners. City Council and Staff constantly refer back to the plan to ensure that we are all taking action on these highlighted areas of local improvement.
Strategic Plan Update
Strategic Planning - 2022
The City of Elmhurst has officially started the strategic planning process. It is perfect timing as we move past the pandemic, that we take a fresh look at our strategic plan. This process, which was last done in 2014, involves identifying a long-term vision including goals and resource needs during the next five-to-ten years. With the input of residents, business owners, and other stakeholders, we use this process to review the City’s strengths, opportunities, limitations, and threats as well as key priorities that City Council should consider. The strategic plan is an important document in shaping the future of Elmhurst. The formal plan will be posted here once complete.
