The individual elements of the Comprehensive Plan call for specific action strategies to bring about the positive change reflected in the Comprehensive Plan Vision Statement. These strategies include bold initiatives to "raise the bar" of expectations in all aspects of quality of life from excellence in public education to accelerating economic prosperity to setting higher standards for the character of neighborhoods, commercial centers, and roadway corridors. While the Plan calls upon the City to increase its tax base and revenues, as well as to pay increased attention to the fiscal implications of redevelopment decisions in light of limited fiscal resources, it is only prudent to establish a highly focused and realistic implementation program to be staged over time.
Fulfilling Our Comprehensive Urban Strategy
Hence, a major theme of the implementation element is FOCUS: Fulfilling Our Comprehensive Urban Strategy, which targets specific areas of the City in need of intervention to promote positive change.
