The Macon-Bibb County Commission undertook a year-long Strategic Planning process in order to focus the work of and continue to build the new consolidated government.
In these sessions, the Commission selected new Mission and Vision Statements, identified five strategic priority areas, and selected strategic projects for the new government. This process helped develop the Fiscal Year 2015 budget, the first full-year budget for Macon-Bibb County by prioritizing what is most important to the Commission and community. With a Strategic Plan approved by the Commission, meetings will be held with departments to determine how to bring the projects to completion and to develop the Fiscal Year 2016 budget.
This year-long process is funded with a grant from the John S. James L. Knight Foundation and is being facilitated by the University of Georgia Carl Vinson Institute of Government.
Macon-Bibb will be the center of development, culture, and opportunity,
remembering our past while inspiring hope and pride for our future.
Macon-Bibb County provides the essential infrastructure, services, and programs,
creating a vibrant economic and cultural climate, enabling individuals, families, and businesses to prosper.
‘Forward Together’ Strategic Priorities
Economic and Community Development
Our highest priority is to create a robust economy and strong communities. We will focus on retaining our current business and industry and creating opportunities for new economic development while addressing poverty and supporting and encouraging quality education and workforce development.
Safe Neighborhoods and Safe Communities
Safe neighborhoods are the foundation of great communities. We will focus our efforts on providing for public safety, citizen education and engagement and crime prevention, all in an effort to create safe and enduring communities.
Effective Government and Governance
Our City Commission and staff will work to improve public perception of the governance and government process and apply fair and equitable taxation principles and employee compensation and utilize best management practices to execute Commission policy towards completing SPLOST and all other projects successfully and in a timely manner. Our most valuable asset is our employees and we will commit to their training and development, recognizing their good works and retaining those assets.
To achieve the community we desire we will focus on and develop stormwater, water and waste water infrastructures and an integrated transportation system of rails, trails, roads and runways to become the logistics hub of Georgia.
Quality of Life
We will support, encourage and promote good-living in Macon-Bibb with the arts and cultural events, tourism improvements, social and night life opportunities and a community-wide system of passive and active recreation.
