City Administrator James Archambo on Tuesday said he was setting a goal of producing a five-year strategic plan in 2013.
"I do not envision an afternoon session in which we merely talk about what is on our minds," he wrote, in a document he presented to the Common Council.
He said that, with council setting policy, he would like to lay out, not a broad, unattainable, impossible-to-measure vision such as "the council should work better toward consensus." The elements of the plan should be "not just what we want to happen."
He said his goal was to develop a list of priorities for the city that takes into account fiscal and political realities. The plan would be "specific, measurable, achievable and realistic," his document states.
Archambo proposed choosing a facilitator, an outside consultant, who would guide the city's work. He said his goal was to have a draft report by late July, "in time for the 2014 budget process.
"The final plan should establish not just my goals, but the city's strategic direction, for the next five years."
Archambo said the last time such a plan was put together was in 2005.
