Strategic Planning and Innovation

The City of Elk Grove’s Office of Strategic Planning and Innovation focuses on the City’s long-term future and high priority strategic objectives to support a vibrant, inclusive, attractive and sustainable community. There are three key areas to the Office: Strategic Initiatives; Long Range Planning; and Civic Innovation.  Staff in the Office explores growth opportunities and innovative solutions, assist diverse teams to embrace new ideas, increase efficiency in government, and provide policy support for the City Manager, City Council, and the broader organization on a variety of topics including land use, sustainability, resiliency, economic development, transportation, technology and other related policy topics. The Office furthers the City’s goals of  integration of user-centered solutions, data-driven decisions, and developing an environment of continuous learning and improvement. The Office collaborates with outside agencies and regional and national organizations to accomplish these objectives.
