August 2011 - Bill Stipp, Councilmember

Goodyear's City Council recently held its first strategic planning session in more than five years. The meeting is called an advance rather than retreat because we look forward, not backwards. It was facilitated by Judi Muller from the City of Phoenix at no cost to us. As a new council member, it was great to learn about each councilmember's perspective on what we collectively value for the City and set strategic goals to take Goodyear into the future.

The City Council is responsible for setting the direction that the City Manager and his staff should take. Setting strategic goals will help the City Manager know where the Council wants to take the City.

Council's plan includes four strategic goals: 1) create a center or gathering place for all residents that promotes a sense of community; 2) continue economic development that supports small businesses and grows business centers around our hospitals, engineering, aerospace and renewable energy; 3) maintain a strong quality of life for our community, and; 4) focus fiscal and resource management to create an organization that works efficiently through streamlined processes and by using technology which manages expenditures and looks for cost savings.

The final report will be reviewed by Council in early fall and include recommendations from the City Manager and his staff on how they will work toward these goals.
