On February 16, 2017, the Mayor and City Council gathered for a strategic planning session where they reviewed the accomplishments of the 2015 Strategic Plan and approved the addition of the “20 in 2020” visionary initiatives and adjustments to specific strategies.

Additionally, the strategic plan was amended to incorporate strategies from the Resiliency Plan. The Resiliency Plan is the result of a three-year effort in which the City of El Paso partnered with the Rockefeller Foundation’s 100 Resilient Cities Network to identify how El Paso can be better prepared to survive, adapt, and thrive no matter the chronic shocks or stresses.
