The Town of Wellington 2022-2024 Strategic Plan outlines the vision, mission and priorities for the year as established by the Board of Trustees. 

22-24 Strategic Plan FINAL - VERSION 2.24.23


Strategic planning is the process by which a Town determines what it intends to achieve in the future and how it will get there. This process involves developing a vision for the Town’s future and determining the necessary goals, priorities, and action steps to achieve that vision. 

A strategic plan serves as the community's roadmap and it is used to prioritize initiatives, goals, projects, resources, and department operations. The strategic plan is a big-picture document directing efforts and resources toward a clearly defined vision. Town staff will be responsible for prioritizing and planning specific projects and operations based on the overall goals and themes specified by the Strategic Plan.
