(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – Mayor Vincent C. Gray today unveiled the One City Action Plan, a comprehensive strategy that describes in specific steps how the Mayor’s One City vision will be achieved. Organized by goals, strategies and actions, the plan provides District residents and business leaders alike with a concrete roadmap to understand and measure progress and hold city officials accountable in the areas that matter most to stakeholders. Picking up on the theme of the mayor’s 2012 State of the District Address – “Seizing Our Future” – the plan emphasizes the need to harness the tremendous change the District is experiencing to remake and reinvent our city for the next generation.
“My administration is based on the idea that we must come together and build a more prosperous, equitable and sustainable future for all,” said Mayor Vincent C. Gray. “We all want a thriving, sustainable city with great schools, safe neighborhoods and a government that works. The One City Action Plan brings together in one document the concrete goals, strategies and actions we’re taking to achieve our ambitious agenda and realize this vision.”
The One City Action Plan is organized into three overarching goals:
- Grow and Diversify the District’s Economy,
- Educate and Prepare the Workforce for the New Economy, and
- Improve the Quality of Life for All.
Within each goal are strategies and specific actions District officials are taking, as well as measurable key indicators for each goal. Each section allows District residents to easily identify actions being pursued by the administration and how they link to the Mayor’s One City vision and goals. Additionally, the plan provides an action checklist so that residents can track progress and hold city officials accountable.
The One City Action Plan was built using the Mayor’s priorities, day-to-day feedback from community members and data from the nearly 2,000 residents who participated in the One City Summit in February 2012.
