Lane County Strategic Planning 

Lane County is working to create a new Strategic Plan. The Lane County Board of Commissioners held an all day strategic planning workshop on June 25, 2014. The public was invited to join commissioners and work with staff to contribute to the forumulation of the new plan. With a successful day of input we were able to get a start on some draft priorities. Work is now underway to continue to meet and develop a framework for those priorities along with strategies that will drive the plan.

Lane County Resident Survey

Since 2009, the County has been surveying residents using the National Citizen Survey developed by the National Research Center.  The 2009 results established baseline data, to be followed up every two years to identify trends and measure change.

The National Citizen Survey, conducted by the National Research Center and developed in partnership with the International City/County Management Association, has been administered in hundreds of local governments around the country.  We’ve chosen this standardized survey instrument to assure high quality research methods as well as the opportunity to compare Lane County’s results to national norms.

Unlike polling regarding specific policies or prioritization of services, the Resident Survey covers a wide range of services across many County funds.  Taken together, the focus areas speak to resident opinions about life in Lane County as well local government services.

Getting periodic feedback from residents helps elected leaders, staff, and other County stakeholder to identify challenges and to plan for and evaluate improvements. Ultimately, it makes us better informed about the people we work for – Lane County residents – and tells us how we’re doing. We’re eager to find out and will share the results this spring right here on our website.
