- Long-term Planning
The purpose of this plan is to create a roadmap for the City of Andover to guide future policy priorities and decisions. The plan addresses four critical topic areas: sports and parks; economic development and quality of life; communications and marketing; and community engagement. The plan will help guide the city’s financial decisions, resource allocation and project priorities moving forward. The planning effort was enhanced through citizen participation in the development of goals, objectives, and strategies. The process was inclusive and resulted in developing mission and vision statements, values, and goals and strategies to advance that vision.
