Council drafts a new vision statement

-A A +A

Strategic planning session also produces 10 statement goals

By Kirsten Laskey

The Los Alamos County Council produced a new vision statement after conducting a three-day strategic planning workshop.
Los Alamos County Council, county staff, the public and Facilitator Carl Neu met Monday through Wednesday at the Pajarito Cliffs site for strategic planning sessions.
During the work sessions, it was agreed a new vision statement needed to be addressed. The draft statement is: “Los Alamos is a world-renowned community where discovery and innovation are inspired by its dramatic history and magnificent mountain setting. We offer extraordinary educational, recreational and cultural opportunities in a vibrant small town atmosphere.”
The previous vision statement, adopted in March 2002, contained 14 different points, which ranged from engage citizenship and diversify the economy to protect the environment and enhance youth activities.
Council Chair Sharon Stover said former Councilor Robert Gibson suggested council revise the previous statement during a special meeting on Aug. 31 but council voted against it.
However, Stover said, “This is a new council … we felt the vision statement and comprehensive plan might be more effective if it was captured in a few words … to guide the county’s future.”
