Following the direction and guidance of the Imperial County Board of Supervisors in early 2015, selected consultants collaborated with the County Executive Office, county department heads, county staff and other stakeholders conducting a series of workshops to collect vital information to compile the Imperial County 2020 Strategic Plan.

The Strategic Plan is intended to provide context within which the county and region can plan and carry out specific actions to achieve measurable results toward the strategic priorities – or goals.

Through this collaborative approach and effort, the Board of Supervisors’ has established both a Mission and Vision Statement as well as endorsed four strategic goals that will serve as guiding principles for the implementation of strategies to achieve the shared Vision for Imperial County.
