MILTON, Ga. - Milton has launched an interactive Strategic Plan Web site at www.cityofmiltonga.us/strategicplan to let residents now the plan is coming along.

This Web site gives Milton residents and business owners a simple, easy-to-use tool to gauge the city's progress on its three-year Strategic Plan.

The plan was created last year to establish a goal-based, short-term direction and vision for the city. It offers increasingly detailed information for users interested in the goals and action items outlined in the Strategic Plan.

Specifically, users can see how well the city is accomplishing the stated goals of:

** promoting the equestrian lifestyle;

** protecting and preserving open space;

** building relationships;

** structuring economic growth;

** providing responsible and responsive government.

The Web site is updated quarterly as elected officials and department directors assess the progress of the Strategic Plan. Commitments are color coded (green, yellow, red) so users can instantly recognize their status.

"Last year we set out to create, with the help of residents, business owners, elected officials and staff, a map we could use to chart our course as a city, and the result was the Strategic Plan," said City Manager Chris Lagerbloom. "It guides budgeting; it dictates what measures constitute success. And now, more than just a static document stored on our Web site, the taxpayers of this city have an open, extensive resource they can use to see exactly how we're following the markers established in this plan."
