Titled Onward Odessa, the final report lays the ground work for community priorities and was created by a joint effort of our local elected officials, city staff, a planning committee of community members, input from citizens via an online survey and a public input forum. The City worked with consultants of Shockey Consulting based out of Kansas City, Missouri. From this project, the City established a vision statement, a mission statement, and outlined our core values as an organization. These tools will be used and referred to in all that we do to create public policy, work to improve citizen services, and in marketing our community for quality growth. In addition to the ways it will be used above we will use components of the plan to continue to strive to improve the quality of life in our town for the residents and businesses alike.
