On Oct. 11, 2022, the City Council approved a five-year strategic plan with policy goals to reflect the most important priorities of the community. These goals are one way the city delivers on the Carlsbad Community Vision, a set of nine core values community members said were important to Carlsbad's future. The annual city budget contains the work plans and resource allocations to achieve the goals in the strategic plan.
