Top 10 Goals for 2022-2023

Strategic Initiatives

At its Strategic Planning Retreat in January 2020, the Town Council reviewed and revised its Vision, Mission, Core Values, and Key Priorities for the Town of Middleburg government. At that meeting, they identified a number of key projects, initiatives, and actions to focus on in the coming years. The Town Council reviewed its Strategic Initiatives in February 2021 and April 2022. 

The Town Council held its most recent Strategic Planning Session on March 6, 2023, at The Hill School, to discuss its strategic goals and initiatives. The Council adopted the updated Strategic Plan at that meeting, and the staff memo can be found here.

The Town Council will establish a two-year Strategic Plan each even year, to be reviewed in odd years for any updates, additions, or changes. Below are the Council's top initiatives for 2022-2023.
