Lane County is updating its three-year strategic plan for 2022–2024. 

 

“Our Strategic Plan focuses our limited time and resources on the most important efforts to improve lives in Lane County,” said County Administrator Steve Mokrohisky. “We absolutely need to hear from our community so that we can be sure our priorities align with our residents’ needs and expectations.”

 

Community members are invited to take an online survey at www.LaneCountyOR.gov/StrategicPlan. Responses are anonymous.

There are also three virtual community visioning meetings next week. No registration is required. 

 

Feedback from Lane County employees will also be gathered, and all input will help the Board of County Commissioners prioritize the County’s work during upcoming work sessions. 

 

“The last two years have presented steep challenges and we have worked to find opportunities within multiple crises,” said Mokrohisky. “Using our Strategic Plan to help us prioritize, Lane County has seized the chance to do the things that may not otherwise have been possible and, in the process, catapult our communities forward. The next Strategic Plan build upon that progress and further enhance the communities we serve.”

 

The Strategic Plan was last updated in 2019 and focused the work of Lane County in four priority areas:

  • Safe, Healthy County
  • Vibrant Communities
  • Robust Infrastructure
  • People & Partnerships

 

Examples of successful initiatives under the most recent Strategic Plan include the purchase of the former VA clinic on River Avenue for use as a shelter and navigation center; construction of Permanent Supportive Housing units; increased rural patrols in West Lane County and the McKenzie Valley; and the completion of a thorough Parks Funding Task Force process.
