Strategic Plan

In 2006, the Township Board of Supervisors adopted its first official Strategic Plan to help provide direction to Township staff on goals for the future. In short, the strategic plan addresses "Where We Are…Where We Are Going…How We Are Going to Get There.”  The Strategic Plan is a continuous work in progress that is reevaluated as needed. The last official update of the strategic plan occurred in 2016. 

An important part of the Township's strategic plan was the adoption of the Ferguson Township mission and vision:

Our Mission

It is Ferguson Township’s mission to provide efficient, cost effective, professional services to our residents in a fair, cooperative, ethical and honest manner. The Township will endeavor to manage its resources allowing planned, sustainable growth while preserving the quality of life and its unique characteristics.

Our Vision

The Township will strive to appropriate staff and resources to maintain its infrastructure in acceptable condition, provide exemplary service, keep Township operations financially stable and keep pace with technology. As a result, the Township can continue to be a leader and model for the Centre Region and other Home Rule municipalities.

The Township is considered a ‘Best Place to Live’ by aspiring to create a sense of place, preserving agriculture and environmentally sensitive areas, and establishing a vibrant town center. Ferguson Township is home to a strong, diversified community and provides an effective transportation system, a rural, small town atmosphere, and the location and availability of open space.
