Council to consider 20-year strategic plan

Commerce – The Commerce City Council Tuesday is scheduled to approve a recently composed strategic plan that will guide the city for the next 20 years.

In a letter to the council, City Manager Dion Miller indicated the working document reflects the thinking of council members, responses of Commerce citizens and directors of city departments.

The council held a retreat on the campus of Texas A&M University-Commerce on April 18 to create the plan, which highlights four overall goals: Maintain service levels, repair streets and update infrastructure, revitalize downtown and retail areas, and maintain communication with leaders of major institutions. Several objectives, along with a timeline for their completion is included under each goal.

KETR will provide more details regarding the 20-year strategic plan on Wednesday, following the council's expected approval of the document Tuesday night. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at Commerce City Hall.
