First Monthly Update for City of Paducah Strategic Plan Action Steps

Date of release:  October 10, 2018

City Manager Jim Arndt has provided the Paducah Board of Commissioners with the first monthly update of the Strategic Plan Action Steps.  The October update is available at Strategic Plan Paducah.

Action Steps that have a high priority level will be updated monthly while the low to medium priority Action Steps will be updated quarterly.  The priority levels were determined by the Paducah Board of Commissioners with input from the City Manager and Directors at a workshop held August 7, 2018.

City Manager Arndt says, “I’m impressed with the amount of work that has been achieved in just the past few weeks.  A majority of the Action Steps are seeing forward movement in determining baseline information such as mapping, data collection, best practices research, and meetings with the accountability partners.” 

The Strategic Plan Action Steps includes objectives under the eight following Key Performance Areas:

  • Enhancing Arts and Culture
  • Provide Open, Smart, and Engaged Government
  • Empower Upward Economic Mobility
  • Develop Healthy and Sustainable Neighborhoods
  • Celebrate a Diverse Community
  • Maintain Thoughtful and Modern Infrastructure
  • Provide Excellent Recreation Experiences
  • Public Safety

Arndt says he plans to review the Strategic Plan annually with the Paducah Board of Commissioners.  Also, Arndt is working with the Leadership Team to update the City of Paducah Mission Statement and Organizational Values.
