City Council Planning Workshop Carries Themes and Goals of Past Workshops

 

During a strategic workshop this morning with Wichita Falls city councilors and city staff city leaders are revealing their inner wants, thoughts and future, long-term goals for the city.
 
Mayor Stephen Santellana and city manager Darron Leiker say they wanted to have this meeting to set the mood for the new council, align the city's goals and what they want to focus on.
 
So far, what's been discussed for their desires, centered on building a community that people want to come to, being transparent with the community and attracting the younger generations.
 
Some of the community trends they identified for Wichita Falls include: Lack of high paying jobs, stagnant and aging population, growing trends of mistrust in government through social media negativity and a present movement for a more progressive community. 
 
They touched on social trends and political factors and then moved onto the economic climate. During the economic discussion they touched on reality of limited opportunity and career growth.
 
The council also stressed how much of a desire they had to grow, be transparent and make a progressive community.  And, as far as citizens needs leaders felt they needed to focus on growth, refocusing on spreading information on what there is to do and revisit rules and regulations so that the community is allowed to grow.
