Since incorporation, Citrus Heights has placed an emphasis on strategic planning to prioritize its policies, programs, and services for the coming year. The City Council, City Manager, and executive staff members participate in the goal and objective-setting process.
It is the responsibility of the City Manager to oversee the implementation of the Strategic Plan, coordinating with the city's operating departments and divisions.
The City Council and staff held a Strategic Planning Retreat on October 25, 2022. As a result of discussion, the City Council adopted new Six-Month Strategic Objectives through May 1, 2023.
