Strategic Plan 2021-2026: Acknowledgements

Strategic planning is a significant undertaking, any time an organization does it. Strategic planning in the middle of a global pandemic is an even more daunting endeavor. However, thanks to the support of the community we serve and the willingness of stakeholders, residents, and staff to contribute their time and attention, we completed this hard work in the most difficult of times.
