Strategic Direction Development

Development of a Five-Year Strategy

Overview

Caltrans District 8 recognized the need for a strategic direction that would create the foundation for setting priorities and making decisions over the next five years.

The plan would address opportunities and challenges through tangible goals, objectives, strategies, actions and implementation plans. It would be structured to support and operationalize the Caltrans Strategic Management Plan and the newly minted mission, vision, and goals.

The District 8 Strategic Direction Initiative was formed through the joint efforts of executives and a multi-discipline team working towards developing a five-year plan for the District.
