The Village's strategic plan was adopted by the Village Board in 2014 and contains six strategic priorities:
- Financial Sustainability
- Commercial Vitality
- Infrastructure Replacement
- Operational Effectiveness
- Organizational Development
- Community Engagement
Each strategic priority includes Key Outcome Indicators developed by the Board and Staff, and Strategic Initiatives and specific tasks related to each developed by Staff. The six strategic priorities emphasize areas of primary concern to the Village Board and Staff. The strategic initiatives associated with each priority and their associated action items as outlined in Appendix VI of the draft plan. This section was developed by Staff through the summer months through extensive discussion and collaboration between Departments.
In developing their priorities for this Strategic Plan, the Village Board emphasized its collective vision for the stewardship of the Village for the next three years by focusing on areas that have historically been hallmarks for the Village of Glencoe – financial sustainability, infrastructure replacement, community involvement – while also focusing on the need to adapt the Village organization to deal with the challenges that lie ahead of the community – commercial vitality, operational effectiveness, organizational development. The need to ensure the sustainability of the mission and vision of the Village of Glencoe was woven through each strategic priority.
This mission and vision, the Village’s commitment to being focused on exceptional service level delivery, being responsive and responsible to the community and its needs and doing so within a fiscally conservative footprint is intended to be maintained, and even enhanced, through the strategic priorities and initiatives of this Plan.
Staff gives quarterly updates to the Village Board on the progress of implementing the actions and initiatives of the Strategic Plan. This plan, once implemented, will be reviewed annually as a component of the Village’s budget process and updated accordingly.
