Olympia's Action Plan

Olympia Onward!

The first Annual Community Report on the Action Plan is available now. The Annual Report tells the story of our community’s commitment to making our vision for Olympia real.

The Report highlights our priorities, shares stories of success, reports on our indicators, and invites others to join us in taking action.

What is the Action Plan?

In 2014, the Olympia City Council adopted a new Comprehensive Plan with a vision for how our community will grow and develop over the next 20 years.

The Action Plan is our community’s “road map,” with strategies and actions for how we’ll achieve the vision and indicators for tracking and reporting on our progress.

Action Areas

The Action Plan is made up of the following five Action Areas:

• Community, Safety, & Health

• Downtown

• Economy

• Environment

• Neighborhoods

Community Indicators

The Action Plan includes 31 community indicators to help us track and share our progress. The data will help us learn if our strategies and actions are effective.

If we aren’t moving the needle on our indicators, we can adjust our priorities, or explore new partnerships to help us be more successful.

Annual Update Process

Each year, City staff will update the Action Plan to include what has been accomplished and what actions we want to continue or start next.

2017 is the first full year of carrying out the Action Plan and includes the first changes to the Plan since the initial framework was accepted by Council in June 2016.
