Previous Strategic Plan

The last Phoenix Corporate Strategic Plan was released in January 1990.  The Phoenix Corporate Strategic Plan, originally developed in 1988, intended to serve as a major policy statement to guide the direction of the city of Phoenix.  The strategic plan is comprised of a mission statement, nine Key Result Areas, and multiple objectives under each area.  In this plan,  the city’s mission was to: “Create a vital City, enhancing the lives of residents and citizens through effective leadership, active community involvement and a dynamic blend of quality government and services.”  The nine Key Result Areas, defined as areas of critical concern for the city, were:

  • Enhanced Transportation
  • Fiscal Strength
  • Quality Services
  • Neighborhood Vitality
  • Environmental Management
  • Shaping City Growth
  • Community Pride
  • Safe City
