Chubbuck Adopts Strategic Plan Outlining Goals for the Next 5 Years

Chubbuck Adopts Strategic Plan Outlining Goals for the Next 5 Years

The City of Chubbuck recently adopted its first strategic plan reflecting residents’ input to establish performance goals and metrics from fiscal year 2019 through 2024. Entitled “Our CommUNITY: A great place to live, work, and raise a family”, the plan has 10 vision elements: Vibrant and Aesthetic Neighborhoods; Diversity, Inclusion, and Unification; Participatory Governance; Effective, Efficient, and Economical Government; Safety and Preparedness; Strong Economy; Healthy Residents; Multi-modal Transportation Accessibility; Thriving Youth and Children; and Growing Arts, Cultural, and Recreational Opportunities. Each vision element includes objectives and performance measures to track progress toward established goals.

The City engaged residents and non-residents through surveys via social media, utility mailers, and randomized mailers and even through computer labs at Highland High School.   Once surveys were compiled and analyzed, each department head in the City had opportunities to provide feedback to identify needs and to develop measures to address the needs. Once a plan was drafted, several versions were provided to the City Council for feedback and ultimately, approval.

“Through feedback of residents, technical staff, and elected officials, we have developed a short-term plan that is intended to be a living document,” stated Mayor Kevin England. “Unlike the more long-term Comprehensive Plan, we intend to review the Strategic Plan annually and to adjust our plan of action if needed in order to satisfy our 5 year goals. This plan is a great example of the Chubbuck community coming together to better position itself for the future.”

FACILITIES NEEDS ASSESSMENT STUDY

CITY OF CHUBBUCK COMPLETES FACILITIES NEEDS ASSESSMENT STUDY

Consultant finds that existing municipal building space is insufficient to accommodate current and projected demands

With the City of Chubbuck’s population having nearly doubled since 1990 from 7,834 to an estimated 14,869 residents in 2017, and with the City continuing to experience growth, LCA Architects and the City have completed a detailed Facilities Needs Assessment Study to determine what needs coming growth likely will be through 2037. Using historical and projected growth rates, current and future staffing needs, and building space inventories, the study identified space deficits due to current and project overcrowded working conditions, needs for building spaces, and needs for additional fire stations to meet response time demands. LCA Architects found that currently, the City has a deficiency of nearly 28,000 square feet between all of the departments including police and animal control, fire, maintenance, parks, and city hall administration and that by 2037, an estimated 68,470 additional square feet will be needed beyond that which currently exists.

“In light of the findings of study, over the past several months department heads and I have been reviewing options and costs for how to meet current and projected demands” said Chubbuck Mayor Kevin England. “Options that we have evaluated include expanding and remodeling existing city hall to continue to accommodate the police department and city hall, remodeling existing city hall to accommodate the police department and constructing a separate city hall building, and identifying where to best locate future fire stations. We have to do something as our employees are stepping over each other just to do their jobs.”

Mayor England and the department heads expect to present an option to the City Council at this year’s upcoming budget proposal.
