Lane County Strategic Planning 

On November 12, 2014, the Board of County Commissioner's adopted the 2014-2017 Strategic Plan. Since June of 2014, Lane County Commissioners, the County Administrator, Department Managers and the general public had been involved in the formulation of priorities for our future. The 2014-2017 Strategic Plan lays out a vision for the future focusing on "Priorities" because we see them as the supporting elements for our vision of Lane County. These focal points are the foundation of our efforts going forward:

- Safe, Healthy County
Vibrant Communities
- Infrastructure

In addition, an ongoing element in this plan will be to build a stable and sufficient strategy for funding the core services we all depend on in Lane County.

Vision: Lane County is recognized as the best county to live, work, and play.
Mission: We responsibly manage limited resources to deliver vital, customer-focused services with passion, innovation, and integrity.
Motto: Lane County Proud

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.
