Windsor's Strategic Plan

Mission Statement


The Town of Windsor's Strategic Plan was first adopted by the Town Board in 2008. Since then it has been updated every two years. This new strategic plan, adopted in 2018, is meant to guide the town's strategy into 2023. 

Our Plan was developed through feedback from our community, review of our existing Plans, the research of data related to growth and development, and over many conversations with staff and the Town Board. A Vision, Mission, and Priorities were developed and affirmed, and they describe both the future of Windsor and how we will get to where we need to be. The Strategic Plan is our foundation for creating more specific action steps to implement our goals.

Mission Statement
