Interactive Strategic Plan Web site now online.


The City of Milton today launched an interactive Strategic Plan Web site at, announced City Manager Chris Lagerbloom.

This Web site gives Milton residents and business owners a simple, easy-to-use tool to gauge the city’s progress on its three-year Strategic Plan, created last year to establish a goal-based, short-term direction and vision for the city. It offers increasingly detailed information for users interested in the goals and action items outlined in the Strategic Plan.

Specifically, users can see how the city is accomplishing the tasks of: promoting the equestrian lifestyle; protecting and preserving open space; building relationships; structuring economic growth; and providing responsible and responsive government.

The Web site is updated quarterly as elected officials and department directors assess the progress of the Strategic Plan. Commitments are color coded (green, yellow red) so users can instantly recognize their status.

“Last year we set out to create, with the help of residents, business owners, elected officials and staff, a map we could use to chart our course as a city, and the result was the Strategic Plan,” said Lagerbloom. “It guides budgeting; it dictates what measures constitute success.

“And now, more than just a static document stored on our Web site, the taxpayers of this city have an open, extensive resource they can use to see exactly how we’re following the markers established in this plan.”
