Strategic Plan

A strategic plan is an essential component of any organization. Largo's Strategic Plan is an evolution of the Future Focus document created in 2015 and seeks to encompass both community aspirations and initiatives. The plan sets goals to maintain those aspects of our community is most proud of, and strives to achieve the new goals expressed by residents and City leaders.

The plan is a blueprint – a guide for the City operations – that focuses on clear, collective goals. As an organization, it helps prioritize resources and facilitate management decisions that target these desired outcomes. As a community, it provides a shared vision for Largo and a basis to identify, evaluate, and communicate progress on results. To learn more, view the three focus areas below, and see how our City is making progress
