The Cottage Grove City Council has a long list.
During the Monday, April 24 meeting of the board, Cottage Grove City Manager Richard Meyers presented councilors with a list of their goals for 2017. The list was compiled during a closed board session in February.
"You have quite the list," Meyers told council. "It's staff's hope that this can be a two or three year goal list just because of the length," he said.
The council divided its goals into five sections including quality of life, public safety, infrastructure, economic development and governance. The top goals included the continued development of city parks, strengthening the community emergency preparedness through promotion and education, fund, replace and maintain community infrastructure and conduct an analysis of the inventory of available land for residential development. The list also called for a neighborhood infrastructure city educational (or NICE) block party.
The council agreed to adopt the list and complete it in no more than two years.
The full list of goals will be available to the public on the city's website at cottagegrove.org.
