CLTLC adopts 3-Year Strategic Plan
April 13, 2016
A shorter Mission Statement is the first visible result of our planning. It appears on our home page. The mission has not changed, but reducing it to one sentence keeps us better focused.
A second focus is on Conservancy resources. The Conservancy funds its mission in two ways: grants and donations. Expanding grants for Conservancy projects is a major role for Bridget and the Board. Donations from Clear Lake community members and supporters are the other critical source of funding. CLTLC is a 501(c)(3) organization so donations are tax-deductible. We are immensely grateful for the support of the many donors listed in each issue of Clear Thinking. Check out our Donate page for more details.
Building partnerships across the community is embedded in our planning. Our projects and programs are made possible with the help from our many partners.
Finally, the strategic planning process identified an opportunity to use working committees to leverage volunteer resources to accomplish the CLTLC mission. Active committees led by trustees can bring greater focus to key areas in our mission: Lands; Finance; Communications; and Water Quality. Community volunteers will be needed on several of these committees.
All of this planning can be summarized as good stewardship. All of us can be involved in preserving, protecting and managing the valuable resources we enjoy in the Clear Lake watershed and township. We invite your ideas, support and shared stewardship for future generations.
