Our Roadmap: How did we get here

Over the past 10 months, APD has hosted numerous listening sessions, across the department, conducted a Community Workforce Survey, and engaged community members. These efforts have contributed to the bigger picture and process to get us where we are today.

Our Roadmap: Where we are now

As a result of these various engagements, we have been able to narrow down our strategic focus areas to five categories. It is important to note, these categories are still in draft mode and could change. As we begin our second round of community sessions, APD would like to present our top five priorities to the community in an open house format.
