Item: Presentation, discussion and possible action on the next steps of the Strategic Planning process.

Item Summary: Over the past several months staff has been making presentations to Council on the different plans the City has. This has taken the form of an analysis of the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats of each plan.

This information has been compiled by City Council Vision Statement. Also, staff has compiled the Advisory Board input, the preliminary budget issues, the unfinished 1999 Strategic Issues, and other information by Vision Statement.

This information will be used as the starting point of the next phase of the strategic planning process which will take place at the annual City Council Retreat on May 22-23. This information will be used to develop strategies and strategic issues by Vision Statement.

A notebook with the strategic planning information will be provided at the workshop.

Staff Recommendations: Receive the information and discuss the Strategic Planning effort.

Council Action Options:
1. Discuss the Strategic Planning effort and provide additional direction for the planning retreat.
