The Los Altos Hills County Fire District is in the process of developing a successor Strategic Plan to the 2015 – 2020 Strategic Plan. The Strategic Plan (SP) Ad Hoc Subcommittee hosted two community meetings to collect stakeholder and public input on the update process.
The Subcommittee provided direction to staff to develop a scope of work that will include a timeline, public Commission meetings, and other elements, with the end result of a viable successor plan. The scope of work also addressed the unique needs and accommodations of conducting this process in a completely online forum, due to social gathering restrictions associated with COVID-19. The scope of work and a draft framework for the Successor Strategic Plan was presented and approved at the LAHCFD Commission Regular Meeting on September 15, 2020.
On October 1, 2020, the District’s Strategic Planning consultant facilitated a Special Meeting of the LAHCFD Commission, stakeholders, and the public to review and discuss a preliminary Successor Strategic Plan. The consultant will revise the plan based on the feedback gathered at the October 1st meeting. A revised plan will be presented to the Commission at a later date, TBD.
Please check back here regularly for updates on the process, including meeting times, agendas, and materials.
