At Annual Retreat, Leon County Updates Five-Year Strategic Plan

At this year's annual retreat, the Board of County Commissioners reviewed and updated the County’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2022-2026 Strategic Plan with the addition of 25 new or amended strategic initiatives that advance the organization’s strategic priorities in the areas of Economy, Environment, Quality of Life and Governance. The initiatives outlined in the strategic plan address the community’s greatest needs, such as affordable housing, health care, food insecurity and so much more.
"I am proud of the Board's work today at our annual retreat, and especially how we came together to ensure our community's continued success and progress," said Leon County Commission Chairman Nick Maddox. "Through strategic planning, we will continue to address our community's needs now and into the future."
As a part of the retreat, the Board received an overview of the County’s continued investment in critical health care services provided by local partners to ensure that uninsured and underinsured low-income residents have access to quality health care in the community.
"As we progress toward achieving our goals, the updated strategic plan aligns with the Board’s priorities and optimizes resources throughout the organization to achieve big results and address our community’s most pressing issues," said Leon County Administrator Vincent S. Long.
As part of the update, Commissioners reviewed the progress towards reaching the bold goals and five-year targets outlined in the FY 2022-2026 Strategic Plan, highlighting successes in the following areas:
  • Connecting 3,700 students to skilled job opportunities through Leon Works and other talent development initiatives;
  • Attracting 16 state, regional and national championships across all sports to Leon County;
  • Securing $25 million in federal, state and local benefits for Leon County veterans and their families;
  • Supporting 135 community events, festivals and cultural programming that attract thousands of visitors and residents;
  • Offering 100% online permitting for licensed contractors, engineers, and architects;
  • Diverting 795,000 pounds of household hazardous waste from the landfill;
  • Increasing the number of fully electric vehicles in the County’s fleet by 275%;
  • And so much more.
The FY 2022-2023 Strategic Planning Retreat materials can be found here.
The strategic priorities and initiatives discussed today will come back before the Board for final approval and ratification in February 2023.
