DuPage County Approves New Strategic Plan

March 26, 2024

DuPage County approved its new strategic plan Tuesday, outlining a clear and comprehensive vision for the future of the County over the next five years. The plan is a roadmap for progress that will guide decision-making and resource allocation to achieve the County's vision.

"This strategic plan marks a pivotal moment for our County, setting the blueprint to keep DuPage County thriving and prosperous for years to come. We are committed to working closely with residents and stakeholders to make these goals a reality," said County Board Chair Deborah Conroy.

The County developed the plan over the course of the last year, with input from residents, community leaders, local officials, and County leadership and staff. The plan incorporates feedback gathered through a variety of channels, including surveys, public forums, and stakeholder meetings. The planning process was led by consulting firm BerryDunn and County staff.

"We are grateful for the input and support of our community members, who helped shape this plan and ensure that it reflects our shared values and vision," said Sadia Covert, Chair of the County's Strategic Planning Committee.

The new plan focuses on six key strategic priorities:

  • Community Well-Being
  • Fiscal Responsibility
  • Thriving Economy
  • Safe Community
  • Environmental Stewardship
  • Mobility

Each of these priorities has specific goals and objectives for implementation, as well as metrics for measuring progress. The strategic plan is intended to serve as a catalyst for positive change in DuPage County, improving the quality of life for residents. 

The County will begin implementing the plan immediately, with a focus on achieving short-term goals and laying the foundation for longer-term initiatives. The plan will be reviewed and updated regularly to ensure that it remains relevant and responsive to the changing needs of the community.
