After plan adoption in April 2018, staff focus shifted to plan implementation. There was intentional effort to ensure structure was in place and processes were defined for implementation. An internal staff charter was developed and goal teams created for each of the six plan goals. These teams would ensure that the objectives, initiatives and measures of those goals would be carried through. Connect Morrisville became part of the organizational culture of the Town and was shared at department meetings organization-wide, as well as incorporated into LAUNCH, our employee orientation program, so that each new employee is provided with the information. Department heads participated in over 10 hours of training and classroom discussion on development of departmental plans to align with the overall strategic plan. Department heads took that guidance back to their departments and engaged staff to glean input and information to develop plans that were both significant and purposeful. Staff is undergoing efforts to align individual goals in FY20 to further incorporate and align with our current evaluation and performance processes. As these processes move forward, staff will be engaged in collecting and reporting data and seeking additional opportunities for on-going engagement with our community.
We heard from over 500 people during the public engagement opportunities through community meetings and survey responses. See some of what we heard:
