-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

The council has been busy with various meetings, which have focused on topics such as the skate park and the municipal building site, but somehow they found time last Friday to hold a daylong strategic planning meeting.

The council’s first order of business was a discussion and update to council and the community on the management action plans for the strategic goals and objectives.

In January 2005, the council adopted strategic goals and objectives. Staff developed Management Action Plans for each objective and has reported on progress semi-annually since that time. The MAPs were updated this month.

Staff provided council with a brief verbal update of the material during the update session on Aug. 22.

The second order of business for the council was to discuss possible revisions to the county’s strategic goals and objectives. There were five main objectives that were discussed:

• Maintain quality essential routine services and supporting infrastructure.

• Improve intergovernmental relations.

• Diversify the economy/revitalize White Rock and Los Alamos downtowns.

• Maintain environmental quality.

• Improve transportation and mobility.
