Mariposa County is in the process of developing its first-ever strategic plan. A strategic plan defines the best version of our community we aspire to achieve (vision), county government's role in reaching that vision (mission), how we will do business along the way (values) and the steps we will be taking to reach our goals (objectives).
The strategic planning process began with data collection leading up to a public strategic planning meeting held in December 2017 with the Board of Supervisors and executive staff. A draft strategic framework (PDF) was presented to the Board in February 2018. Staff is continuing to take public comment and develop objectives in the plan. This process includes the county's first-ever citizen survey, which is being managed concurrently. A completed plan is expected to be presented to the Board of Supervisors in May or June 2018.
Draft vision, mission and values statements are listed below. If you have comments or questions on these statements or any objectives you would like to see in the plan, please contact county administration.
