The City Playbook was created as an internal management tool to guide decision-making and ensure the city’s resources are aligned with our strategic goals. It articulates the city’s most important initiatives – those efforts most likely to help us become the most livable city in the country – and the resource needs associated with them.
The Playbook is structured around the city’s strategic framework, providing a summary for each of our eight goals. Initiatives are listed under the primary goal they serve; however, most initiatives help the City achieve multiple goals. For example, advocating for bike and pedestrian infrastructure helps us create a Connected Community, but also a Safe and Secure Community, a Healthy Community and an Environmentally Sustainable Community.
The Playbook highlights ambitious city initiatives including efforts to reach 100% renewable energy use citywide, maintain housing affordability, increase the use of alternative modes of transportation (like bus and bicycles), address the opioid epidemic, invest in our neighborhoods and continue to improve and expand our system of parks and open spaces.
