Planning for the Future
SMART under the leadership of its new General Manager Eddy Cumins has begun the process of developing a Strategic Plan. The first step in the planning process was to conduct a SWOT Analysis, consisting of a clear-eyed look at SMART Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats developed by SMART staff. This was followed by the SMART Board of Directors creating the following Vision and Mission statements.
Vision Statement: Smarter Transportation for a Smarter Future - SMART envisions an innovative transportation that provides integrated mobility solutions, promotes sustainable growth, and enhances quality of life.
Mission Statement: We Connect Communities - SMART provides safe, reliable, and environmentally responsible transportation options.
The Board of Directors also chose to focus the strategic planning process on four Strategic Objectives which strategies will be built upon. These Objectives are:
The next step is to engage with the public through a series of listening sessions focused on topics reflecting these four Strategic Objectives
