Strategic Plans

The Beaufort Strategic Plan 2019 through 2021

Each goal includes the rationale and ways to measure progress and success.  Furthermore, the plan also identifies the staff tasked with monitoring and/or implementing the work.

The plans reflect immediate concerns that also have connections to the long-term vitality and growth of the City of Beaufort.

A summation of the six goals of the Strategic Plans is as follows:

GOAL 1

Encourage sustainable economic growth through new businesses and expansions to achieve tax base diversification and career paths into or beyond middle income through targeted recruitment and expansion of businesses in technology, knowledge management, advanced manufacturing and emerging sectors. 

GOAL 2

Create a long-range plan and identify available revenue streams to address the City’s infrastructure and development needs.

GOAL 3

Create and coordinate programs and opportunities for the development of housing that is affordable to be constructed in the City to provide the needed housing for our workforce.

GOAL 4

Through tourism and an active, vibrant downtown, attract those who wish to relocate their offices and businesses here to live, work, and play by capitalizing on that which gives Beaufort unmatched quality of life opportunities. 

GOAL 5

Continue our plan to accommodate balanced growth through infill and community development throughout the City. The emphasis for 2019 and 2020 will be in the Northwest Quadrant, parts of the Old Commons, and the Dixon Village areas. 

GOAL 6

 Create and coordinate an Environmental Sustainability Task force to address and mitigate the effects of storm water, flooding, rising sea levels, and natural disasters. 

GOAL 7

Coordinate and collaborate with community stakeholders to identify the overall educational needs within the City, resulting in a sound educational needs and workforce development plan.
