As one of the fastest-growing regions in the country, our organization's strategic plan is an essential tool to ensure we can respond to local and regional challenges in a forward-thinking and dynamic way.

In 2021, CPRC's Board of Delegates unanimously adopted the first-ever Central Pines Regional Council Strategic Framework to guide our work for the next few years. The framework outlined a new mission, vision, and organizational priorities, formalized six strategic focus areas of work, and enhanced core values to guide CPRC employees.

How Was the Framework Developed?

CPRC partnered with consultant Monica Allen to guide the framework's development.

The team collected information through an environmental scan of our organization; focus groups, surveys, and one-on-one interviews with key stakeholders; a Strategic Planning Steering Committee comprised of local government elected officials and staff.
