The City of St. Charles 2023-2027 Strategic Plan officially was adopted by the City Council at the January 17, 2023 City Council
meeting. View the plan here.
The Strategic Plan establishes the City’s new mission statement, vision statement, and guiding principles, which embody the
character of the community. The plan identifies four strategic priorities:
- Balanced and Thoughtful Development
- Community Engagement
- Organizational Resiliency
- Financial Wellness
Each strategic priority includes goals, outcome objectives, actions, and timelines. City Council will use this plan to guide budget and policy decisions for the next five years.
The City of St. Charles 2023-2027 Strategic Plan is the result of eight months of interviews, focus groups, planning sessions, and
surveys with residents, businesses, community partners, elected officials, and employees.
“We wanted to hear from as many people as possible. So we held both in-person and virtual community planning sessions,” said City Administrator Heather McGuire. “We also hosted a dedicated website where members of the community could pin comments, ideas, and photos. The site successfully drew more than 10,000 visits. I want to thank everyone who participated in the Strategic Planning process. Your feedback was invaluable.”
