Strategic Plan

Strategic Planning is a roadmap employed by many local governments to guide the use of money, personnel and resources to realize a shared vision of the future. It outlines what a community hopes to achieve through a long-term and annual goal-setting process and provides steps for reaching those goals.

As the Town of Wake Forest continues to grow and thrive, the Board of Commissioners aims to chart a course with a strategic plan which articulates a vision for our community‚Äôs future that will ensure vitality and sustainability. 

The town is guided by a comprehensive strategic planning process. The board meets annually to refine the items that comprise the town's strategic plan and to ensure that it is reflective of the changing needs of our growing community.

The strategic plan is comprised of three main areas that represent the town's commitment to serving the community, including our core values, our five-year goals and our strategies to achieve those goals.

This model aligns town programs and spending with long-term goals, brings critical needs into focus and provides an organizational roadmap for success. The town's strategic plan is a critical component of a larger system of planning for our organization's success, which also encompasses the annual budget process, citizen input, capital improvements, technology prioritization and financial planning.
