Coconut Creek wrapping up long-term plan

The Coconut Creek Visions 2020 Assembly was initiated by the City in order to develop a 10-year “greenprint” for the city’s future. Coconut Creek residents, business representatives, and educators participated in this initiative that began with a Steering Committee of 12 and culminated with an Assembly of 60 people.
The topics discussed over a day and a half period were:  Quality of Life/City Services, Economic Development/Environmental Preservation, and Education/Recreation/and Cultural Resources.
“From the final report, the most important issues will be converted into actions and programs that will ultimately be incorporated into the City’s budget,” stated Dave Rivera, City Manager, Coconut Creek.  “Our ultimate goal and direction is to demonstrate accountability in the execution of the vision and strategic plan and align employee and department/division goals with the community’s vision and strategies”.
Vision 2020 utilized a modified version of American Assembly procedures.    The American Assembly process is a negotiating procedure designed to reach consensus on issues of interest to diverse parties.
A copy of the complete policy statement can be found on the city’s website ( under “About Coconut Creek”.
