The Strategic Plan guides the scope and direction of County services based on priorities established by the Board of County Commissioners - after extensive input from the public.
The plan enables all County divisions and departments to focus their actions, resources, and budgets on goals and projects that support the County’s grand vision of its desired future.
Monroe County Strategic Plan 2020
At the Monroe County Board of County Commissioners March 2019 meeting, the Commission adopted the 2020 Strategic Plan. This five-year Plan guides priorities and direction of County services through the annual budget process.
The updated Strategic Plan is effective Oct. 1, 2019, and is based on priorities established by the BOCC using extensive input from the public. The Plan was created using 18 months of research and feedback from the community, collected before and after Hurricane Irma in 2017.
The Plan articulates the County Commission’s vision of “creating a better life every day for everyone in the Florida Keys by working to create balance in our quality of life, strong economy and natural environment.” The plan includes a mission to enhance the quality of life by providing outstanding public service that is responsive to the needs of the County’s citizens, the unique community, and the environment. The Plan details their specific areas of concern and priority in the three areas of Quality of Life, Economy, and Environment.
County senior management creates departmental requests for the budget based on the identified BOCC priorities for services, programs, and projects.
