CITY OF ROHNERT PARK
REDEVELOPMENT STRATEGIC PLANNING
In 2009, as part of the preparation of a five-year implementation plan, RSG facilitated a strategic planning process with the Rohnert Park City Council. The context was that the City was facing a structural deficit in FY 2009-10 and depleting reserves, so a series of short, medium, and long term fiscal and economic development actions were necessary. At the same time, the City Council (who also sat as the CDC) were often split on the priorities and focus. After collecting and summarizing takeaways from prior strategic planning activities, RSG started with initial interviews of individual members, then led an informational and strategic session of the entire CDC, resulting in a series of priorities that were incorporated into their 5-year plan.
