At the June 28, 2016 regular City Council meeting, the La Mirada City Council adopted Resolution No. 16-19 approving the La Mirada Strategic Plan 2020. 

The Strategic Plan is a management tool for identifying future goals and objectives and setting the course necessary to achieve these objectives.  The Plan also assists the City in adapting to changes occurring within and outside the organization, and in directing the City’s efforts and resources to focus on its highest priorities.

The Plan identifies 18 separate goals in support of five core strategies. Additionally, 68 specific actions with key performance indicators have been set to assist in achieving these goals by the end of 2020.

2020 Strategic Plan Process

The Strategic Plan 2020 planning process began in 2015 at various Study Session meetings and City Council Retreats. During the planning process, City Council reviewed key elements of the 2015 Plan and proposed new elements for the Strategic Plan 2020, including the mission statement, vision statement, guiding values, and core strategies. 


The Plan goals and objectives were then prepared in consideration of community input. A Community Satisfaction Survey was completed in September where residents provided feedback on community interests and satisfaction with City services. Staff also conducted extensive outreach efforts through the "Share Your La Mirada Vision" campaign to receive community feedback. The campaign included a Community Forum, Community Input Forms, and a Community Workshop.  The Plan was also reviewed by City Commissions and advisory bodies. 

Below was the Strategic Plan 2020 timeline adoption.
