Fayette Forward embarked on the task of updating Fayette County’s Strategic Plan. Fayette Forward is a partnership of individuals, business owners, organizations, nonprofit groups, county and local agencies, and elected officials who work together to develop, implement, and update the Strategic Plan. The first Strategic Plan for Fayette County was adopted by the County Commissioners in 1995, followed by an update to the plan in 1998. A Progress Report was released in 2000 that detailed the accomplishments of Fayette Forward since its adoption in 1995. The accomplishments are highlighted in this plan and are evidence of the success of the Strategic Plan. This update of the Strategic Plan was designed to build on past accomplishments and set new priority objectives for each Action Committee with input from Fayette County residents. Fayette Forward completed the plan in September 2003, and worked closely with the Action Committees and other key partners to leverage funding and identify resources to achieve the top priority objectives over the next five years. This plan is a “living document” for which progress is continually evaluated against measurements, and the plan is updated to reflect changes over time.
Currently through 2010 we will be developing the 2010 Strategic Plan called “2020 Vision” for the communities and the county. 2010 plan will not be like other plans. The plan will not only be focused on the county needs but the communities need also. We will be working on the values and beliefs for the county and communities and what that mean and the impact that they will have on the community. we will also be developing goals and objectives. We need each community to get involved with the planning processes.
