2024 Strategic Doing Framework

The City of Colorado Springs, under Mayor Yemi’s leadership, has developed a 2024 Strategic Doing Framework. This document is informed by community input through Listening Tours and Solutions Team recommendations. It also includes input from City staff and City Councilmembers. This Framework does not represent every action the City will take in 2024. It represents what the community asked its municipal government to prioritize in the near term.

This framework will help inform the City’s long-term strategic plan, which is actively being developed and will be published in the summer of 2024.  As part of the Strategic Plan implementation, annual Strategic Doing Frameworks will be a key deliverable from Mayor Yemi’s Administration. The purpose is to move ideas and plans into action-oriented collaborations that result in measurable outcomes.

The intent of this Framework is to set ambitious goals, to be transparent about the work the City is doing on the community’s behalf, and to hold the Administration accountable to deliver measurable outcomes around each strategic priority. The five strategic priorities are:

  1. Public Safety
  2. Infrastructure
  3. Housing Solutions
  4. Economic Vitality
  5. Community Activation

In each of these priorities, the City has set “SMART” goals, which are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and time bound. There are a total of 20 initiatives in the 2024 Strategic Doing Framework that will be supported by cross-departmental teams and detailed workplans around each initiative. Each workplan will provide specificity around team members, partners, action items and tactics, as well as key performance indicators. The City will report this information to the community through online dashboards and regular communication.

The 2024 Strategic Doing Framework is purposefully bold and ambitious. As such, the Administration recognizes it may not achieve full success in each of the action items listed. What’s most important is being transparent about the successes and challenges associated with each goal and moving the City forward around the strategic priorities with measurable outcomes.
