Strategic Plan

The FAPC Strategic Plan is a flexible, living document, designed to be reviewed, edited, and updated annually by the Council with subsequent approval by the Commissioners. Its purpose is to provide step-by-step concrete guidance to the Council and its committees and, at a glance, show the current status of various projects. The plan consists of values and operating principles as well as specific short-term and long-term goals, objectives, actions and timelines for potential positive impact toward fulfilling the Council's mission.
