Strategic Plan

The City of Beaumont has created a strategic plan for Fiscal Year 2023/2024.

What is the purpose of a strategic plan?

Strategic planning is an organizational management activity aimed to set priorities, goals and objectives for an organization. Once those priorities are identified it enables those responsible for carrying out those goals to focus energy and resources, strengthen operations, ensure that employees and other stakeholders are working toward common goals, establish agreement around intended outcomes/results, and assess and adjust the organization’s direction in response to a changing environment. 

Strategic planning produces fundamental decisions and actions that shape and guide what an organization is, who it serves, what it does, and why it does it, all with a focus on the future. Effective strategic planning articulates not only where an organization is going and the actions needed to make progress, but also how it will know if it is successful.

How can I be involved?

In order to develop a plan that truly reflects the Beaumont community, we created a four question survey that was circulated to the community via our website, email blasts, social media pages and pop-up events. Your feedback was valuable to help guide the City’s vision and align goals, priorities, and prepare a budget over the next year.  The survey is now closed and the plan was presented to City Council at the March 21, 2023 City Council Meeting for formal adoption. The plan is now a living document and will be updated and reviewed on an on-going basis. The public is welcome to provide feedback on the plan when it is brought back to future City Council Meetings.

How will we use the strategic plan?

This strategic plan is a living document that will be used to define the future vision for the City of Beaumont, which will be used now and in the years to come. Having a strategic plan will allow us to:

  • Make decisions and evaluate our policies, plans, programs, service delivery and processes with an eye on the future. These processes will be evaluated and prioritized based on how they intend to meet the goals and objectives of the strategic plan.
  • Communicate our priorities within a credible, forward-thinking and well-understood framework so we can make effective budget and policy decisions and secure the resources we need to sustain the City into the future.
  • Maintain a guiding “north star,” providing stability and more certainty in the face of election cycles, changes in leadership, economic fluctuations and changes to the state and federal regulatory environments. This gives the City greater ability to influence and steer its future direction and make better decisions during turbulent times.
