Strategic Planning

City of El Paso's Mission, Vision & ValuesThe City of El Paso is a reflective and future-focused organization. The Strategic Plan sets the tone and direction of our service delivery by establishing goals, strategies and key strategic objectives while also aligning operations and resources to achieve them. Activating the power of the plan has shaped transformative, tangible results since its initial adoption in 2015.

We undertake a Strategic Planning Process to reflect on work accomplished, share progress being made across our eight goals to attain our four vision blocks, and to ensure we identify new or emerging areas of focus. This process is dynamic, intentional and demonstrates our leadership system in action anchored in Plan, People, Process and Performance.

City Leaders convened the most recent Strategic Planning Session in December 2021. This high-energy, community-focused event centered on reinforcing the collective big picture---driven by the data, dialogue, and key decisions shaping our future.
