Update on The Economic Impact of Poverty Report for the Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners
Under the leadership of the Board of County Commissioners, Pinellas County underwent a variety of strategic planning activities that led to a restructure of County programs, services, staff, and resources within the last couple of years. These strategic planning activities began as leaders recognized that the demand for County services was outpacing the available resources to support many County programs. As a result, the Board of County Commissioners embarked on a series of strategic planning workshops in 2011 to develop a vision, mission, and leadership philosophy that would help frame future policy and budget discussions. The Board’s strategic vision was an improved quality of life for Pinellas County residents and aims to have municipalities, engaged citizens, and the County working together to better align resources, to revitalize and redevelop communities, and protect our natural resources.
