Receive and file the draft staff report for the Tactical Planning Workshop
The April 26, 2003 Tactical Planning Workshop was cancelled for lack of a quorum.
It may not be possible for the City Council to identify another date for a Tactical Planning Workshop prior to the summer vacation period. Therefore, staff has provided a draft of the report that was prepared to facilitate discussion at the April 26th Workshop. Councilmembers may wish to review it as an indication of staff’s interpretation of the more significant actions anticipated to take place over the next twelve months, or until Council provides further direction.
Attachment: Draft Staff Report
TO: HONORABLE MAYOR AND CITY COUNCIL

DATE: APRIL 29, 2003
SUBJECT: COUNCIL AND STAFF TACTICAL PLANNING WORKSHOP - DRAFT
Purpose and Definitions
For the purposes of this workshop "Tactical Planning" refers to those specific actions the City Council (and City staff) will employ over the next twelve months to achieve it’s objectives. Although some objectives identified by the City Council may take more than a year to achieve, the Tactical Planning workshop will focus on those actions to be taken only over the next twelve months.
...the City Council, Planning Commission, and Staff continue to adhere to its Vision Statement for the City, to promote a well informed educated public with regard to City issues, problems, and services; a friendly responsive and competent City government; a safe community in which to live and work; a community with a sound economic base; a sound financial base to support and maintain vital City services; reductions to long-term public infrastructure costs within the City; and, a well maintained, balanced, and aesthetically pleasing community.
- The above came out of the Annual Report on the RPV General Plan for year 1998
As a result of a March 9, 2002 Workshop the Council and staff members identified the most important City Council values. The City Council then prioritized the values. Here are the top six values.
