Elgin to hold Community Input Sessions to help develop new strategic plan

The city of Elgin invites residents, community groups and local businesses to help shape the city’s next strategic plan by participating in one of six Community Input Sessions. The new strategic plan will launch in 2018, following the conclusion of the five-year strategic plan that began in 2013.

The Elgin City Council and city staff use the strategic plan to identify and prioritize initiatives and strategies to enhance the community. In addition to the results from the recent community survey, these meetings provide another venue to gather input on the issues should receive heightened attention by the city in the next three to five years.

Stakeholders who are unable to attend a meeting in person can provide input through an online community survey. The survey is available at cityofelgin.org/communitysurvey until August 10.
