Since 1996, the Orange County LAFCO Commission has annually conducted a strategic planning session. Adoption of a strategic plan for one year allows the Commission and staff to proactively plan for long-range projects, prioritize staff’s efforts, and ensure the most efficient allocation of resources.
On March 18, 2016, the Commission held its 20th Annual Strategic Planning Session, during which they discussed the accomplishments of the current work plan and identified key project opportunities for FY 2016-17. Additionally, the Commission reviewed and updated its operational goals.
At the end of the session, the Commission approved the OC LAFCO’s Strategic Plan for the 2016-17 fiscal year. The 2016-17 Work Plan, which was developed to implement the project opportunities incorporated in that Strategic Plan, was reviewed and approved by the Commission at its meeting in May. The final budget for FY 2016-17, which is designed to align the agency’s staff resources with those project opportunities contained in the Work Plan, was adopted by the Commission at its meeting of June 8, 2016.
