Community Vision Plan “Imagine Klamath” 2024-2028

The Klamath County Board of Commissioners is proud to announce completion of the County’s strategic plan: Klamath County Community Vision Plan “Imagine Klamath” 2024-2028.

In January 2023, the Board of Commissioners began working with Moss Adams, a professional services consulting firm, to create a Community Vision Plan for the County.  The Community Vision Plan is a result of months of collaborative efforts, insightful discussions and invaluable input from the Moss Adams Team, the Strategic Plan Steering Committee, County staff and over 1,200 citizens.  The plan lays out a course of action for the next five years by establishing priority goals for the County, identifying actions to effectively achieve those goals and defining a framework to share our progress. 

The Board of Commissioners would like to thank the staff members, community members and all County strategic partners who helped to shape this plan by participating in interviews, open houses, online surveys and public comment throughout the planning period. While this plan is the first step, the real work begins today as we work to turn this vision plan into a reality. Together, we can envision a bright future for Klamath County and create a community where everyone can thrive.  As we continue to work on making the plan a reality, we'll post updates to this page.

Klamath County Announces Strategic Planning Process

Dear County Community Members,

We are excited to announce that we have started a strategic planning process for our County. This process will help us define our goals and priorities, identify our strengths and weaknesses, and create a roadmap for the future development of our community.

Why is strategic planning important for our community?

Strategic planning is a critical process that helps organizations and communities identify their priorities and develop a plan to achieve them. By engaging in this process, we can ensure that we are working towards a common vision and leveraging our resources effectively. A strategic plan can help us make informed decisions, allocate resources efficiently, and track our progress over time.

What will the strategic planning process involve?

    The strategic planning process will involve several stages, including:

    Visioning: We will engage the community to develop a shared vision of the future for our county.

    Assessment: We will assess our current strengths and weaknesses, as well as the opportunities and challenges that we face.

    Goal-setting: Based on our vision and assessment, we will develop a set of strategic goals that reflect our community's priorities.

    Action planning: We will develop specific action plans to achieve each goal, identifying the resources needed and the metrics for success.

    Implementation: We will implement our action plans and monitor our progress over time.

We want to engage as many community members as possible in the strategic planning process. Your input is critical to ensuring that the plan reflects the diverse perspectives and priorities of our community. We recently hosted two community meetings and distributed a survey to gather input and feedback from our community. 

We are excited to embark on this journey with you and look forward to creating a brighter future for our county.
