City of Reno Strategic Planning Session 2015

Strategic Planning Session 2015 

Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve and the Reno City Council met on March 10, 2015 at the Desert Research Institute (DRI) to discuss the Strategic Plan for the City of Reno. Reno City Manager Andrew Clinger and City of Reno leadership staff also took part in the day-long planning discussion. 

The City of Reno’s official, updated mission and strategic priorities will receive final approval at a future Council meeting.


The Reno city government aspires to be as exceptional as our city is. Our vision is to have a city government that works to enhance our city’s quality of life by listening to and valuing the needs of all citizens. When we can listen to the needs of the people and provide them with the services and leadership they’re asking for, then we’ll have a city government that truly reflects the best qualities of the place we call home.


The City of Reno Government’s mission is to efficiently provide the highest level of service responsive to our community and to enhance the quality of life and economic vitality.


We believe that in order to achieve our purpose, mission and vision, we must:

  • Provide Safe and Livable Neighborhoods
  • Provide Efficient and Responsive City Services
  • Promote a Sustainable and Vibrant Economy
  • Enhance Communication and Community Engagement

Council Priorities and City Innovation:

We've established a cross-department and community represented task force for each priority to evaluate its goals, objectives, tactics and actions. These teams are meeting on a regular basis and brainstorming innovative ideas to make the City smarter and more efficient.
