Baytown Strategic Plan
About Our Strategic Plan
In January 2021, the City of Baytown relaunched a community-engagement effort to develop a city-wide strategic plan to guide decisions about Baytown's future. A strategic plan is the most fundamental guide for a community's future where the plan sets a common direction for the city (a vision) based on the needs expressed by community members. The strategic plan is high-level, broad in nature, and designed to inform more specific policy and decision-making in the future. Our plan relied on heavy public participation in conversations focused on the future. The Strategic Planning Advisory Committee (SPAC), comprised of residents, business owners, and other community stakeholders, led the process. Baytown's 5-year community-based strategic plan is a community vision supported by shared values, goals, and objectives. The City Council unanimously adopted the new 5-year community-based strategic plan on April 14, 2022 for fiscal years (FY) 2023-2027.

The Strategic Plan consists of five strategic directives identified as the community's top priorities.
