Strategic Plan Update for 2015

Camp Hill Borough Strategic Plan: One-year Progress Report

It’s been just over a year since we adopted our Strategic Plan.  In order to keep moving forward, it’s important that we regularly check on our progress. To that end, we are providing this one-year progress report, and we’ll continue to report as we go forward.  We also want to encourage you to get engaged if you aren’t already.

  1. Progress report

The attached spreadsheet provides, for each of the objectives in the Strategic Plan, priority, target completion date, status against target (red-yellow-green) and status update.  In brief, we’ve completed or are in the process of implementing several of the objectives in the Plan, some objectives are developed but not yet implemented, and some items still need to be developed.  Items completed and underway include:

  • Recreation and Green Space:  new and greatly improved Siebert Park; agreement to create green space at the Schaeffer school property
  • Infrastructure:  comprehensive stormwater system mapping completed; numerous sewer system improvements implemented
  • Mobility:  “bike-friendly community” (BFC) effort initiated, including pursuing the official BFC designation, adding bike racks (look for them soon), and many other activities
  • Communication:  new borough website

(Note that all of our agreed objectives are in the Plan, including items that were already underway when the Plan was adopted)

  1. Review and updates going forward
  • We will give an update to the community once per year or more often if needed
  • The Plan will be reviewed by Borough Council every 6 months
  • The Plan will be reviewed by the Borough manager at least once per quarter
  1. Get engaged!

Our bike friendly effort is a great example of people from the community stepping up and driving one of our objectives forward. Tim Poole has led the effort, many others have joined and done great work, and Council and Mayor Simpson are supporting the effort.

Just as we benefited greatly from broad community engagement in developing the Plan, we’ll achieve our objectives sooner and more effectively if more Borough residents are involved.  So, if there is something in the Plan you are interested in or have expertise in – or if you know someone else who might – please contact anyone on Borough Council or any of the Borough staff.
