Developing an organizational strategy means making choices and decisions. Defining strategy means determining to what need or demand must we respond to achieve the desired future for our community and organization.
Strategic Focus Areas
To this end, the Charlotte City Council has defined five strategic areas on which the City focuses its resources:
- Community Safety
- Housing & Neighborhood Development
- Economic Development
While the strategic areas have been fairly stable over the years, the initiatives the organization undertakes to respond within each of the strategic focus areas continues to evolve to meet changing demands.
- Align with the mission of the organization -- "Why we exist."
- Attend to the vision for the city -- "What we want to be."
