Washoe County Strategic Plan

The strategic planning process was initiated in response to a shared desire among the Board of County Commission and County leadership to institute a strategic management process where strategic priorities, organization alignment and performance metrics are part of core management practices. Additional outcomes of the planning process included linking the strategic plan to the budget to ensure resources are more closely aligned to priorities and an organizational conversation about values and culture is initiated.


Working together regionally to provide and sustain a safe, secure and healthy community.


Washoe County will be the social, economic and policy leadership force in Nevada and the western United States.



We are dedicated to uncompromising honesty in our dealings with the public and each other in conformance with our code of conduct.


We believe in simple, accurate, and clear communication. We encourage the open exchange of ideas and information. 


The County exists to serve the public. We put the needs and expectations of citizens at the center of everything we do and take pride in delivering services of the highest quality. 


 Strategic Objectives & GoalsSP-DOC4.png

A Strategic Planning Committee exists for each of these objectives. Each committee consists of representation from across the County guiding the processes, executing key components of the processes and managing communications throughout the phased development of the strategic plan.
