Executive Summary:

The 2021 Strategic Plan for the City of Independence is the result of several months of focus and discussion updating Independence For All, to plan and guide the City's course for the future. The heart of the plan is captured in four goals: Customer-Focused, Financially Sustainable, Economy, and Quality with five priorities: 

- Reduce Crime and Disorder
- Enhance Public Health
- Reduce Blight
- Stabilize and Revitalize Neighborhoods
- Communicate More Effectively Internally and Externally


Adoption of the Strategic Plan is a continuous planning process. Staff can begin implementing some of the proposed strategies immediately, but others are dependent on decisions that must be evaluated in the annual budget process and development of business plans. The intent is for the City Council to review and update the Strategic Plan on an annual basis to monitor progress and direct adjustments as needed.
