Dear citizens, stakeholders and visitors:
Throughout our City’s history, leaders have always kept an eye on the future while being mindful of our past. As mayor of such a wonderful community and strong municipal organization, I am honored to present this strategic plan for the City of Germantown. Supported by a clearly articulated set of key performance areas and strategic objectives, the Germantown Forward 2030 vision statement identifies the right choices to move Germantown toward a sustainable future.

First, I must recognize and acknowledge the work of the 30-member strategic planning steering committee. Over a period of 12 months, they created the long-range vision and guiding principles under which this strategic plan has emerged. Next, nine task forces took the vision statement and over a very tight and rigorous time frame, developed meaningful and actionable strategic objectives and performance measures that breathe life into our plan. The result is a strategic vision and plan that is truly a product of the community.
Creating a sustainable city requires a long-term view. The Germantown Forward 2030 plan captures this with a focus on quality of life issues, fiscal responsibility, strong public safety and community engagement. This strategic plan is intended to help guide Germantown in these areas by charting a course to navigate the economic, environmental and social arena in which the City operates.
Your continued support to build a sustainable future makes our vision for Germantown possible. I look forward to the years ahead and am confident we can achieve the strategic objectives contained within this plan.
