Germantown is a vibrant, thoughtfully planned community where residents enjoy a high quality of life. In 2016, our City adopted a strategic plan to ensure the sustainability of these qualities for future generations. With our eyes on the ever-evolving future, we included the objective to reevaluate that plan every five years. Now, as mayor of this thriving city, I’m proud to present the next iteration of our growth strategy.
Germantown Forward 2035 is the result of the hard work of a resident steering committee that scrutinized the original plan and reshaped it to fit Germantown’s emerging growth narrative. Guided by a set of clearly designated key performance areas and strategic objectives, the participating community members adjusted the City’s vision statement and set more goals to parallel modern advancements and changing times. The end product is this strategic vision and plan crafted by the community, for the community.
Creating a sustainable city calls for forward thinking. The Germantown Forward 2035 plan reflects this vision with a strong emphasis on public safety, community engagement, quality of life issues, education, fiscal responsibility and natural resources. This strategic plan aims to navigate Germantown through the economic, social and environmental issues that impact the City regularly.
Your ongoing support in contributing to the City’s sustainability makes our vision for Germantown possible. I look forward to witnessing our future successes and progress as outlined within this plan.
MAYOR MIKE PALAZZOLO
