2013-2015 Strategic Plan
About the Plan
On August 19, 2013, the Vienna Town Council endorsed the 2013-2015 Strategic Plan.  The Plan identifies ten key performance areas developed by the Town Council that support the Town's overall Vision Statement.  The plan is an evolving document and contains major initiatives that support the key performance areas.  The initiatives contained within the plan will be completed or achieve a major benchmark within the two year time frame.  The plan will be reviewed and revised in 2015 in preparation of the 2016-2018 Strategic Plan.

Vision Statement
“The Town of Vienna is a safe, thriving, vibrant, diverse, multi-generational community of single family homes, town homes, apartments and many local businesses and restaurants that are supported by residents and our neighboring communities.  Vienna is an easy place to get around by foot or on bike with convenient access to amenities, businesses and services.  Vienna has a strong sense of history and tradition, and is a place residents are proud to call home and enjoy many community events.  Vienna citizens are involved in schools, community organizations, sports and Town government.  The Town has many beautiful parks and trails, and supports environmental stewardship.  The Town government both leads and reflects the public’s interest in building the community by being efficient, financially sound and service oriented.   Strong communication, trust and respect exist among citizens, local officials, Town staff and businesses.”

Mission Statement
“To provide our community with exceptional services that promote a safe and healthy environment rooted in tradition, while supporting a greater quality of life.”
