2024 City Council Priority Session #1


Periodically, the Santa Clara City Council meets to establish Priority Areas of Focus and key initiatives for the City organization. The City Council's last Priority Setting Session was held on February 8, 2022. Since that time, progress has been made on many initiatives and the City Council has taken formal action to refer potential new initiatives to its 2024 Priority Setting Session(s).
The goals of the Priority Sessions are for the City Council to establish Priority Areas of Focus and key initiatives for the City organization. These priorities generally set the policy framework for budget decisions and how City resources are aligned to support these objectives.
The City Council established specific priority areas at previous Priority Setting Sessions as follows:
1. Deliver and Enhance High-Quality Efficient Services and Infrastructure
2. Manage Strategically Our Workforce Capacity and Resources
3. Promote and Enhance Economic, Housing and Transportation Development
4. Enhance Community Sports, Recreational and Arts Assets
5. Ensure Compliance with Measure J and Manage Levi's Stadium
6. Enhance Community Engagement and Transparency
7. Promote Sustainability and Environmental Protection
The 2024 City Council Priority Setting sessions are scheduled to take place with the first two sessions on March 25, 2023 and April 3, 2023 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. A third session will be scheduled as needed in the coming months once the City Council has finalized its priority suggestions. City staff will review and conduct an analysis of the priorities including determining budget allocations needed and timeline estimates for priorities and initiatives.
