The role of the City of Centralia is to create an environment conducive to achieving community goals. This Strategic Plan was developed because our community faces many short- and long-term challenges and opportunities. We face real constraints and cannot do it all. We must prioritize what matters most to advance the community's long-term desires for the future.
We will use the Strategic Plan to focus City efforts - beyond the day-to-day running of the City - on what matters most to achieve the community's desired future. The Plan will help us continue to prioritize scarce resources. The Implementation Framework described on page 5 will guide that ongoing conversation among policymakers, staff, and members of the community.
