Comprehensive Plan Implementation

The City of Bainbridge Island's 2017 Comprehensive Plan is a visionary document that presents an ambitious long-range plan to support a sustainable, healthy, and thriving community. The City Council and City staff worked together throughout 2018 to connect our day-to-day tasks, legislation agendas, and ongoing projects to the vision presented by the implementing actions of the Comprehensive Plan. The result is a commitment to develop and utilize a platform to track progress on these important

The Implementation Work Plan is a tool to plan and track efforts to complete the action priorities identified across the various strategic elements in the Comprehensive Plan. Each element in the Implementation Work Plan includes a summary table, an estimated schedule, and an additional detail table for each item and task. Work plan items and tasks are assigned priority based on various criteria including current work in progress, resources committed, and significance and urgency of the project.

The Implementation Work Plan is updated periodically according to changes in schedule, the addition of work plan items, adjustment of City Council priorities, and other influencing factors. It is intended to be a living document that staff will review and update at least twice a year, allowing the City and the community to monitor progress toward achieving our long-term goals and vision.

Mid-Year Reporting (as of June 30th, 2019)

In Q3 and Q4 of 2019, City staff will work to transition Comprehensive Plan Implementation reporting to the same format used for Citywide Workplan reports. This will create a more readable, user-friendly report, and help to solidify the connection between the vision of the Comprehensive Plan and the day-to-day operations of the City.

Status of the Comprehensive Plan Implementation Work Plan will be reported again at year-end (December 31, 2019). The Citywide Workplan Priorities documents also provide additional information and reporting on the City's key tasks and initiatives for the coming year.
