The City Council Action Plan represents the City Council's collective vision for Escondido's future and the key activities that will be used to achieve that vision. It is developed biennially following a workshop where key policy interests are identified and discussed by the City Council and City Staff.
On February 27, 2013, the City Council held a nearly five-hour workshop to identify and discuss key policy goals. During that meeting, each council member was able to elaborate on their ideas for city priorities. At the conclusion of the workshop, the City Council approved the following categories (in alphabetical order) for the 2013-2014 Council Action Plan:
- Economic Development
- Fiscal Management
- Neighborhood Improvement
- Public Safety
Over the next few months, City staff members will identify the current reality in each of those areas and develop strategies to achieve the City Council’s goals, as well as evaluation measures. A draft of each of the four categories will be scheduled separately for City Council review. Then a final document will be prepared by early summer for final Council approval.
