City Launches Five-Year Strategic Plan Update

Your Opinion Counts!

The City of St. Charles is updating its five-year Strategic Plan which will serve as a road map, guiding decisions about the City’s future. The Strategic Plan will incorporate feedback from the community and key stakeholders, establish the City’s vision, and align City goals, priorities, and budgets over the next five years.

“It’s our residents and businesses that make St. Charles the great city that it is,” says Mayor Lora Vitek. “Your involvement in the Strategic Planning Process is invaluable. We want to make sure that this plan truly reflects our community and what you think is important. “

We want to hear from you! Here’s how you can help shape the future of St. Charles:

  1. Visit the Strategic Plan Website & Take the Survey

The City has launched a Strategic Plan website where you can give us feedback about what you think the City’s priorities should be over the next five years. The site offers several ways to share your thoughts:

  • Take a brief survey where you can rank priorities.
  • Leave a comment about your vision for St. Charles.
  • Pin an idea, comment, or photo, on the interactive map.
  1. Come to the Community Workshops

Two community workshops will be held. Attend a workshop and tell us what you think.
