Strategic Plan Open House

Thursday, October 7, 2021

Stop by the City Commission Room this Thursday, October 7 from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. to review the draft Strategic Plan and share your feedback. Staff will be on hand to facilitate discussion and answer questions. You can also review the draft and share your comments on the project website at Create a log in to access all the features until October 17.


Since January 2021, the City of Manhattan has been going through a strategic planning process to guide decision making, growth, and community investment. The City has never created a strategic plan focused solely on responsibilities and initiatives of our City government. The aim of the plan is to help prioritize City services, programs, projects, and future investments as we continue striving to be a great place to live for all Manhattan residents. Two rounds of public engagement occurred in March/April and May of 2021, with nearly two thousand participants and over 24,000 pieces of public input received that helped develop the plan's framework, goals, and actions. 

Review & comment on the draft strategic plan

A draft of the City's first-ever strategic plan is available for viewing and comment through October 17th. We want to hear your feedback! After you've had a chance to review the plan document, there is a forum space for the public to provide comment on the project website.

Click here to review the plan document and provide your feedback. 

Help prioritize the action agenda of the plan

The draft plan has five key goal areas with 46 total actions within the plan. The city's strategic plan has a five-year focus, and we understand many action will take time and/or resources to start and complete, and we can't do them all at once. A survey has been included on the project website through October 17th to help us prioritize critical actions of the plan.

Thank you

The City of Manhattan would like to provide a special thank you to all members of the public that have participated throughout this process and provided invaluable feedback that guided the development of this strategic plan.
