Phase 1

The development of the 2025 – 2029 City of Colorado Springs Strategic Plan is underway! The City is currently in Phase 1 of the year-long development process. 

Phase 1 is dedicated to establishing the City’s strategic intention of being fully collaborative and community driven. With that intention, the City is focused not only on strategic planning but “strategic doing.” Community input is at the heart of each phase of the process, as well as the execution and implementation of the plan. 

Outcomes expected from Phase 1:

  • Seven listening sessions from the Listening Tour with Mayor Yemi and Colorado Springs City Council, which will yield a collection of feedback from residents across our community on what the City’s strategic goals and priorities should be.
  • The creation of a Strategic Plan Development Working Group, which is a mix of engaged community leaders, residents, and City staff. This group will provide a diversity of experiences and perspectives from around the community to help shape the mission, goals, and priorities and implement Mayor Yemi's vision of Colorado Springs as a culturally rich, economically prosperous, safe, and vibrant world-class American City.
  • Engaging an independent strategic plan consultant to aid the City in executing a robust Strategic Plan development process.
