TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) — The City of Tallahassee hosted a commission workshop Wednesday morning, focused on the strategic plan.
The plan includes goals of public trust, public safety, quality of life, impact on poverty, public infrastructure, and economic development.
City Commissioner Elaine Bryant said she is particularly focused on the goal of economic development.
“There is a connectivity between economics in this community, finding jobs, that’s directly linked to people wanting to stay here. So, we have talent that can be engaged and stay in this community, and not only stay in this community, but people that are already here,” said Commissioner Bryant.
The stated goal reads “to advance the City of Tallahassee as a competitive, innovative, and sustainable regional economic hub.”
Multiple commissioners wrote comments such as “Great start!” on the board, but had quite a few ideas for the next five years.
