Public Input Needed for Village Strategic Plan Update

Image result for community engagementThe Village of Bellevue is beginning the process of updating its Strategic Plan for the years 2020-2024. A strategic plan is a set of vision statements with supporting goals and objectives which guide the Village Board and staff with policy decisions and actions.

For this update, the Village is looking to gather as much public input as possible to help establish these guiding vision statements. In order to accomplish this, one community engagement session will be held each week of October where members of the public will participate and provide their input for where they want to Bellevue be in 5, 10, and 20 years and beyond. The more public participation, the more accurate and robust the strategic plan becomes, so please encourage your friends and family to participate when available.

Additional information will be provided as we near the month of October, including specific times and dates of the community engagement sessions. Alternative methods of providing input will also be available on the Village's website soon (e.g. survey). Any questions may be directed to Jared Heyn, Assistant to the Administrator, at (920) 593-5509 or by email, by clicking here.

We look forward to hearing from you in October!
