Lane County adds another community meeting on Nov. 17 for Strategic Plan update
Posted on 11/12/2021

Lane County has added another community visioning meeting to help with the Strategic Plan update process. The new meeting Wednesday, November 17, at 11:30 a.m. Community members can join the meeting at www.LaneCountyOR.gov/StrategicPlan.

 

“We want to offer another community meeting because we’ve had great, in-depth input from people who have participated so far – especially during the first daytime meeting,” said Lane County Strategic Planning Supervisor Judy Williams.

 

Previous community visioning meetings were held in early November during both daytime and evening hours. 

 

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

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.
