Press Play Fort Lauderdale: Our City, Our Strategic Plan 2024

In April 2013, the City Commission unanimously approved Fast Forward Fort Lauderdale 2035, our community's Vision Plan. Our staff is committed to working with our community partners to move forward with urgency and focus to implement the Vision through our Strategic Plan, Press Play Fort Lauderdale 2024. The Vision is our community's long-term aspiration for the future of Fort Lauderdale; Press Play Fort Lauderdale 2024 is our second five-year journey to that Vision.

Press Play Fort Lauderdale 2024 is structured around six focus areas: Infrastructure, Public Places, Neighborhood Enhancement, Business Development, Public Safety, and Internal Support. The focus areas are designed to bring coordination and collaboration amongst City departments to move the City closer to achieving the Community vision as we do what we do every day; build community. The framework enables our workforce to collaborate, innovate and work together toward the eight goals and 35 objectives identified in the plan. The progress and performance will be tracked and evaluated by reporting on 36 performance measures that will guide decision-making and resource allocation.

To further the progress of the five-year strategic plan, City departments will develop strategic initiatives that support the strategic plan. Moving the strategic initiatives to the departments provides an opportunity for the City to be more flexible and agile in prioritizing, planning, and executing projects that support the strategic plan, allowing staff to be actively involved in aligning the City’s daily activities with medium and long-term goals and objectives.

The employees of the City are committed to the successful implementation of Press Play Fort Lauderdale 2024, and as we look toward the future our organizational values that were introduced in 2019 – Integrity, Compassion, Accountability, Respect, and Excellence will provide guidance and set expectations for how we build community. The values that were developed and created by the employees for employees emphasize important qualities that define successes in our daily work as we strive to continuously deliver quality services to our neighbors. 

Each department, distinctively and together, will be champions of the plan and align strategy and operations to achieve success. Community partnerships will also continue to play a significant role as we work together to build community.
