The Spokane City Council on Monday adopted a long-range plan aimed at guiding the city’s future.
The 34-page strategic plan outlines the city’s goals in public works, service delivery, public safety, neighborhoods and growth management.
The goals range from maintaining a “fair and equitable tax and regulatory climate” to reforming the “personnel and civil service system by 2000.”
Assistant City Attorney Dorothy Webster said city department heads frequently will compare the goals to reality to make sure the plan is being followed.
Mayor Jack Geraghty lauded Webster’s work, saying other plans “floated off into ether someplace. Now, we’ve got management strategies to track this.”
