Strategic Plan

The City of Beaumont is putting together 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 need to hear from you. Your feedback is valuable in guiding the City’s vision and aligning City goals, priorities, and budget over the next year. We have created a simple four question survey to gather our community's input on the great things the City of Beaumont is already doing, find out the things we can do better and get your input on things you want to see the city prioritize and focus on in the coming budget year.

How will we use the strategic plan once it is complete?

This strategic plan will become 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.
