The City Commission voted to establish a Strategic Planning Subcommittee comprised of Mayor Richard Finley, Vice-Mayor James Harrod and Commissioner Lesa Shaw on January 17, 2017. The subcommittee has spent considerable time and effort preparing the draft Strategic Plan that is now available for public review and comment. Adoption of the final plan is expected to occur in June.
A series of public meetings have been scheduled to provide an opportunity for public review and comment of the draft plan. The dates, times, and locations are included in the link below.
The format of each meeting is the same and will consist of a short introduction of the planning process, a summary of the Shawnee Community Survey, and a question and answer session. The events will also include visual displays where individuals can review parts of the plan and interact with staff and elected officials in an open-house format after the more formal portion.
