Town Planning Retreat

The materials provided with this memorandum are for your consideration during the Town Planning Retreat scheduled February 20 and 21.

The Retreat Planning Committee designed this retreat and planning process based on what we have learned from our past retreats.  The process is designed to celebrate and build on our past successes and recognize the evolving relationships between the Town Council and the Senior Management Team. At the retreat, the Mayor and Council will focus on strategy, leadership and ownership of the goals set for the Town. Staff will return to a Council business meeting in April with additional information about how we may accomplish your goals, including measures, resources required and challenges. The key outcome for this retreat is to establish Council agreement on the 2009 goals and action steps.

The role of the staff in this retreat is to provide the Council with expertise, and to be responsive and resourceful as the Council examines the community’s challenges and opportunities. I look forward to working with you to celebrate the Town’s success in achieving its goals in 2008, clarify our expectations and develop measurements of success for 2009.
