“The February 20, 2016, special meeting was very productive,
and all in attendance shared insight into future challenges and opportunities,”
Maple Grove City Administrator Heidi Nelson wrote in a memo to the council.
The five priorities set for 2016-2018, according to documents provided to the council, include:
- Create a proactive economic development program to address retention, expansion, and recruitment of industry in Maple Grove
- Embark on the comprehensive plan update process to create a long-term vision for the build-out of Maple Grove.
- Prioritize coordination and leadership for information systems to support technology and efficiency advances throughout the organization.
- Prioritize succession planning and staff development efforts throughout the organization. Streamline administrative and hiring processes.
“Establishing these goals provides city staff with clear direction and provides for a proactive approach to future development opportunities, streamlining operations and coordinating outreach,” Nelson wrote.
Before approving the 2016-2018, Councilmember Erik Johnson shared a thank you for Nelson and department directors for their work, time, and feedback. A “good job by all,” he said.
