Town of Greenville Strategic Plan
The Town of Greenville began its strategic planning efforts in June of 2018. A strategic plan is a top level planning tool for an organization to establish clear policy direction over all operational aspects of its vision.
The Strategic Plan will serve as a framework for decision making over a five-year period. The plan will be the result of a disciplined effort to facilitate decisions that will shape what the Town intends to accomplish.
