The city’s Strategic Plan Advisory Committee is seeking input from the public on the current state of Geneva and what initiatives are needed to enhance quality of life for residents. The purpose of collecting the community feedback is to identify common themes and ideas for the City Council to assess when planning for Geneva’s future.

A strategic plan is a valuable tool for city leaders to acknowledge areas of improvement within a community, ascertain resources to utilize and prioritize goals.
