In January 2017 at the State of the City, Jim Thomas, City Manager announced near completion of the priorities and goals set forth as a part of the City's strategic plan through 2020. He also shared the City would begin a new visioning process called Claremore Dreams 2025.
The visioning process to develop Claremore Dreams 2025 is set to take place over nine months with eleven milestones, announcing the results of the data captured at the January 2018 State of the City. August marks the fourth month of the process, with six of the eleven milestones met.

The City is asking for citizens to help develop, find ownership and champion the vision behind Claremore Dreams 2025. They are seeking input by traveling into each of the four wards, hosting town halls. These sessions will be a time for the city to listen to input that will help drive the strategic plan for the next eight years. They are open to the public, even if you do not reside within that particular ward. All are encouraged to attend, as well as invite others.
The upcoming town halls are open to the public, even if you do not reside within the ward. RSVP links can be found below.
