What is the Action Plan?

After an award-winning Comprehensive Plan update called Imagine Olympia, the City Council wanted to ensure the newly adopted 20-year community vision didn't just sit on a shelf. To keep it alive and at the forefront for how we grow and develop, Council approved our community's first Action Plan in July 2016.

The Action Plan is a "road map" for moving the Comprehensive Plan vision forward with a set of indicators to track our progress. City staff, community partners, and community members all contributed to identifying strategies and actions to accomplish the Comprehensive Plan vision for each of five Action Areas:

The Action Plan indicators reflect all elements of the Comprehensive Plan and data that is meaningful for our community.
