Each year, the Municipality’s Management and its Director General define a number of themes as the targets for special efforts by every unit of the Municipality for that year – in addition to their regular work.
These municipal emphases are the product of the city’s vision as a whole, but enable it to focus on certain subjects each year – according to preliminary strategic thinking based on knowledge, information and data that is consistently and regularly collected by the municipal Strategic Planning Division.
The municipal emphases enable the Municipality to break down the vision into an annual work plan, providing an up-to-date response to changing conditions and needs.
Each unit of the Municipality manifests these emphases through its definition of targets and objectives to be implemented in that year’s work plan. During the year there is regular oversight of the plans’ implementation.
