In a special meeting on Thursday, Feb. 11 at 5 p.m., the Goleta City Council will receive city staff’s proposed updates for the 2021-23 strategic plan, and provide direction on further changes to make.
The plan identifies priorities and goals of the organization and serves as a roadmap for the purpose of informing future decision making and the city’s budget allocations.
The following proposed changes include: adding a ninth citywide strategy to the plan to ensure equity, inclusion and access in city programs, services and activities; updating introductory text for some sections; removing, revising or adding strategic goals and objectives and more.
Some of the new goals include providing Spanish interpretation at public hearings and other key meetings; publicizing availability of library resources; improving communication, program access and facility access for people with disabilities; and considering additional opportunities for public engagement in city activities, among others.
