Board of Supervisors Adopts 2022 Strategic Plan for
Prince George County
A Strategic Plan is a promise to the community on what their local government is going to try to achieve for them. It is a set of results that the government will dedicate people, resources, and partnerships for the community to achieve these results. After months of preparation with interviews, Focus Group Sessions, public input forums, and a survey/questionnaire, the County had its Strategic Plan meeting on May 14, 2022 where the Board came up with four strategic priorities. The four strategic priorities are Infrastructure, Economic Development & Prosperity, Land Use & Development, and Good Governance. Under each of these priorities are Strategic Goals. A Strategic Goal describes in measurable terms the significant results the Organization must accomplish over the next 2-5 years in order to fulfill the Board’s intention for the Strategic Priority.
At the Board’s August 9 work session, Managing Results LLC presented the final draft Strategic Plan documents including the Plan and Priorities, the County’s Vision Statement and the County’s Mission Statement that were developed over the past several months. At its September 13 meeting, the Board unanimously approved and adopted the Plan.
