For over 60 years, the City of Sugar Land has been the regional standard-bearer in government accessibility, transparency, and openness in the delivery of the high level of services our citizens expect.
This can only be accomplished by a commitment to bold and thoughtful thinking designed to make life sweeter and more refined for the people and businesses that call Sugar Land home. We call it "The Sugar Land Way".
The evolution of the Sugar Land Way - now known as the Sugar Land Way 2.0 is a pathway to re-imagine the city and provide for future success. This mindset continues to provide a guidepost to distinguish ourselves from others and seek opportunities that break from the norm. In short, we are setting out to do things differently.
Re-imagining the future requires us to have a bold vision – one that supports a next generation competitive advantage in the lifecycle of our city and focuses on initiatives intended to address City Council’s vision. Strategic Outcomes were recently identified by City Council that reflect the community’s priorities.
To achieve these Strategic Outcomes, we are implementing a “First-Team Mindset.” This means our resources will galvanize to support these outcomes. City teams are participating in what we call “All-in Initiatives” which bring resources from all levels of the organization to work together. As part of this process, a number of priorities have been identified.
We are very excited about where this new strategic journey will take us knowing that the best is yet to come for Sugar Land.
The Two-Year Action Plan is where the vision of the community and the daily actions of our Championship Workforce intersect; it’s where the longer-term vision meets our highest organizational priorities.
Linked to the Governing Body’s Strategic Outcome Areas, this document includes the organization’s internal Focus Area Objectives & Guiding Statements – along with our annual work plan of “All-In” Initiatives and “Leadership-Championed” Projects.
Strategic Outcomes are vision statements that describe an intended goal. For Sugar Land, these are high-level descriptions of where we want to be as a city and the strategies that will get us there.
We are setting out to do things differently. The actions we take over the next few years will determine what the future in the lifecycle of our city will look like. Strategic Outcomes are a vision for future success that will enable us to stay relevant and preserve the quality of life for current and future residents.
Organizational priorities are specific projects and/or initiatives that are dynamic, broad and significant in scale. These initiatives have broad organizational support, and are crucial to the long-term success of the City.
All-In Initiatives galvanize participation from all City departments with a “first-team mindset.” The intention is to push organizational priorities forward.
A cross-departmental team across the organization – representing operational, financial, strategic, innovative and values-based perspectives – purposefully designed to enhance the alignment of all of our efforts throughout the entire organization.
