The City of Iowa City has published its latest progress report for the 2020-2021 Strategic Plan.

The City’s Strategic Plan is a goal-setting document that establishes top priorities and initiatives of City Council. The Strategic Plan, developed approximately every two years, is a collaborative effort between Council members and City staff. Initiatives identified in the Plan guide staff actions as they address Council priorities through specific programs, policies, and projects.
