The Thornton City Council annually adopts a Work Plan. The Work Plan is developed by city council and staff to serve as a guide to achieve the high-priority goals city council has identified:
- Urban Revitalization
- Economic Development and Job Creation
- Innovation and Conservation
- Transit and Transportation
- Community Facilities Plan
- Ongoing Services
The Work Plan includes benchmarks for measuring progress towards the goals -- as well as estimated timeframes, by calendar quarter, when policy decisions, interim reports, or summary reports will be brought back to city council. The Work Plan is a dynamic plan that may be revised as new challenges or opportunities arise and city council periodically reviews the benchmarks to evaluate progress made toward achieving the goals.
