HISTORICAL NOTE:  The City of Yuma embarked on a strategic planning process that began with a community survey in 1988 and a series of Town Halls (see small manuscripts collection).  Seven areas were rated as priorities: physical development; community resources and distribution of costs; growth and economic development; transportation; education; health and social services; and cultural change and quality of life.  

To expand citizen involvement, a Steering Committee coordinating the work and task forces for each priority area were developed.  Their findings, analyses of resources, recommendations, implementation plans, action steps and milestones offer insights into how this historic city with strong ties to California and Mexico is positioning itself for the future.

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE:  This collection is comprised of material from 3-ring binders that document the work of the planning process from recruitment of volunteers to milestones achieved.  No series. Arranged chronologically.
