Sydney Gilmore, Administrative Secretary
of Colville Vision 20/20 Strategic Plan 2016
We are undergoing development of the City's Strategic Plan, entitled
Vision 20/20. As with eyesight, 20-20 indicates vision which is clear and
sharply focused. A City strategy, likewise, should be unobstructed,
well-defined and distinct. It should articulate the Colville community's
vision, values and priorities and seek to realize these desires through a set of
thoughtfully laid out goals, policies and action.
Collecting Ideas, Getting Results!
