Strategic Plan

The Strategic Plan represents an organization-wide effort that articulates the direction and priorities of the Ketchikan Gateway Borough.  The document is effectively a five-year work plan that includes the following key outcome areas:

  • Community Health and Safety 
  • Vibrant Economy
  • Transportation
  • Quality of Life
  • Organizational Excellence

The plan lays out strategic outcomes with corresponding objectives and measurements with the goal of providing exceptional municipal services to residents.

Originally adopted by the Borough Assembly in 2018, the Strategic Plan directs the development of the annual Borough Budget and is reviewed by the Assembly once a year at its annual Policy Session.  The plan may be amended annually during the Policy Session to reflect changing public priorities and available resources. 

Following this plan helps create a more effective Borough government that improves the lives and reflects the priorities of its citizens.
