The City of Worcester has launched a public survey seeking feedback from business owners, landlords, and residents on its five-year municipal strategic plan draft.

The plan, which aims to improve public services and municipal operations in the city, is based off self-study, internal discussion, and public input stemming from the City’s Now | Next plan and other city-wide municipal plans, according to a press release issued by the City on Friday.

The current draft of the municipal strategic plan highlights six priority areas: public health and safety, affordable neighborhoods and reduced homelessness, investment in quality education, clean city initiatives, high-performing government and strong financial health, and economic growth.

“This is an incredibly important opportunity for community members to contribute to the creation of the City’s Strategic Plan, which will help guide municipal operations over the next five years,” Worcester City Manager Eric Batista said in the press release. “I want to encourage everyone to take the time to review the draft and please fill out the survey. Community input is essential to defining our municipal roadmap. We look forward to seeing the results of the survey.”

The strategic plan will cover fiscal 2025 through 2029 and comes on the heels of a previous plan implemented from fiscal 2020 to 2024. 

The public survey, available on the City’s website, will be open through June 26.
