The Vienna Town Council now has a new strategic plan.
“This plan builds on the town’s previous 2013-2015 strategic plan,” Lynne Coan, the communications and marketing manager for town, said at the Town Council’s meeting Monday night. “Goals, strategies and action steps are outlined in the plan to provide a roadmap for the town’s ongoing services and priorities over the next five years.”
The Town Council adopted the plan at its April 29 meeting. The plan focuses on a variety of areas, including safety, mobility, fiscal responsibility and environmental sustainability.
Some of the goals targetted for this year include:
- Incorporate wider sidewalks in areas of high pedestrian use
- Identify locations for bicycle parking and bike-sharing stations
- Issue a Request for Proposal (RFP) for consultant to lead zoning code update
- Implement quarterly budget reporting
Town staff started discussing the plan with the assistance of Craig Gerhart, a faculty member at the Virginia Institute of Government and former Prince William County Executive, in 2017. Councilmembers have worked on the plan since January last year, Coan said.
