The Rockdale Strategic Plan was unveiled and adopted at today’s BOC meeting.  The vision for the plan was championed by Commissioner Doreen Williams.  The plan entitled, “Envision Rockdale 2020-2024” is a strategic framework of feedback, suggestions and recommendations from residents, employees and elected officials to provide a roadmap for the county’s economic development initiatives.

Developed by InterComm Enterprises, the plan focuses on 5 critical areas:  Infrastructure and Transportation; Economic Development; Quality of Life; Education and Workforce Development; and Social Investment

President of InterComm Bill Stark provided a brief overview of the plan to the BOC.  Employees were presented with plaques for their participation in the project by the BOC.
