From our Director, Susan Anderson: New strategic plan will guide our bureau through 2013

It is my pleasure to present the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability’s 2011-13 Strategic Plan. The plan provides a clear path forward and a framework for developing innovative approaches and practical solutions on issues as far-ranging as comprehensive, strategic, neighborhood and infrastructure planning to waste reduction, green and historic building, recycling, food, energy efficiency and solar technologies.

The strategy includes a strong mission, goals and objectives, as well as a clear understanding of our values and the “toolbox” we use to deliver on our goals.

Many thanks to those community members who contributed to the strategic planning process for BPS over the course of the last year via surveys, interviews and focus groups. As with all of our work to make Portland a more prosperous, equitable and healthy city, we rely on active collaboration with public and private partners from around the city and across the globe.

I am proud to represent the hard working staff of BPS. They bring tremendous technical expertise, collaboration and problem-solving skills, integrated and long-range thinking, entrepreneurial experience and a passion to make a difference on critical issues. We look forward to working with a community full of partners to implement these many ambitious projects and policies.

Please take a look at our new strategic plan. Let us know what you think, and tell us how you can be a partner to help reach our citywide goals.
