Every year, Holon’s general manager and the city executives designate specific areas in which special efforts will be made that year, over and above the city’s regular work.
The areas of emphasis derive from the Municipal Vision Statement, but the specific areas chosen are the result of prior strategic thinking, based on the knowledge, information and data regularly gathered by the municipality's Strategic Planning Division.
Creating areas of emphasis allows the city to turn the vision into a viable work plan, providing timely responses to the ever-changing needs and conditions.
Each municipal division translates these focal points into goals that are to be realized during the year as part of its work plan. Adherence to these work plans is monitored throughout the year.
