The Village Board unanimously adopted the 2021-2023 Strategic Plan. The plan reflects the Village’s priorities, commitment to measurable results and the delivery of quality services. Work on the plan began in late 2019 with extensive community input, including a resident survey, focus groups with local businesses, and two Village Board workshops. These activities led to the creation of vision and mission statements and identification of organizational values:
Shorewood is a distinctive and economically vibrant community where families and businesses thrive. We offer a welcoming environment, a mix of recreational and cultural amenities that create a place we are all proud to call "Home."
To deliver essential services that create a safe, sustainable, high quality community. This is accomplished through the efforts of a responsive, forward-looking, and dedicated workforce.
Community First – We work on behalf of community interests, not individual interests.
Honest & Open – We are honest and open in our service to the public.
Commitment to Excellence – We serve the community with the highest degree of professionalism.
Stewards of the Public Trust – We maintain the public’s trust through reliable, transparent service.
Skilled & Competent Workforce – We are committed to maintaining a highly trained, committed workforce.
The Plan also identified four strategic priorities for the next three years:
Well-Trained, Sustainable Workforce Associated with each of these four priorities is a set of desired outcomes, key outcome indicators, and performance targets, describing expected results and how the results will be measured. Village staff has created Action Plans designed to bring each strategic priority to fruition over the next three years.
