Strategic Plan For Fiscal And Economic Sustainability
In June 2009, the City Council updated its Strategic Plan for Fiscal and Economic Sustainability [PDF]. The Strategic Plan, originally adopted in July 2007, is designed to serve as a work program for the City Council, City staff, and the EDC to promote and sustain fiscal and economic vitality in Newport Beach. It is intended, in part, as a companion document for the General Plan (adopted in 2006), to assist the City in implementing portions of the General Plan that affect economic development in the City. Beyond City land use and development policy, however, the Strategic Plan includes goals and objectives to enhance the business climate in the community.
The Strategic Plan focuses on a shorter time frame (three to five years) than does the General Plan, since economic conditions and priorities can change more rapidly than do planning goals related to community character and land use patterns. The Strategic Plan calls for regular reviews of progress and re-assessments of priorities. 2009 Annual Review of the Strategic Plan. (PDF)
