In March 2023, the Mayor and City Council formally adopted Priorities to take the City into the 23-25 Biennium and beyond. The priorities are:
- Wildfire risk reduction and CEAP (Climate Energy Action Plan) execution
- Economic Development including development of eco-tourism like trails, ensuring City processes such as planning are supportive of attracting new business and supporting those already here
- Affordability including attainable housing, and review of our rate structures for progressiveness in their livability
All with the underlying supporting principles of equity of access, and strong supportive city services with a customer service focus.
The Council Priorities were preceded by the adoption of Vision and Value Statements for the City in the summer of 2022. View the Vision and Value statements at ashland.or.us/VisionandValues.
