On March 6th and 7th, 2015, the City of Lincoln Council Members and staff participated in a strategic planning retreat facilitated by the Center for Governmental Studies (CGS) at Northern Illinois University (NIU). The purpose of the retreat was to define and address strategic issues impacting the current environment in which Lincoln operates. The first day of the retreat was used to present current data trends in Lincoln that provided a foundation for the second day’s planning. At that time, participants heard the results of a community satisfaction survey and demographic trends. The second day of the retreat focused on developing a vision and mission for the City of Lincoln and identifying the key strategic areas for future planning.
