Five-Year Strategic Plan

Every five years, the City Manager is responsible for preparing and submitting a strategic plan to the City Council. A strategic plan sets goals for an organization and outlines a plan to achieve them. Strategic Planning is a best practice for all organizations, both public and private. With input from constituents, the City’s Strategic Plan represents a shared vision for the future of Santa Ana. The Five-Year Strategic Plan includes the following Strategic Priorities (not listed in order of importance):

  1. Financial Stability
  2. Community Safety
  3. Modern Facilities & Infrastructure
  4. Efficient City Services
  5. Economic Diversification & Expansion

Each Strategic Priority has associated goals and performance measurements for the next five years. The Strategic Plan also includes initiatives that will be developed one year at a time, using the Strategic Priorities and Goals as a guide. City management has internally developed specific initiatives for Fiscal Year 2020-21 to support each goal.
