Welcome to our long-term strategic plan page.
We are excited to work with the communities we serve to develop a
plan that will provide direction and establish priorities for the
next 3-5 years. The Strategic Plan will include the San Diego County
Air Pollution Control District's (SDAPCD) vision and mission
statement, goals, and actions SDAPCD will take to achieve those goals.

Strategic planning is an organizational management activity to set priorities, focus energy and resources, strengthen operations, ensure that employees and other stakeholders are working toward common goals, establish agreement around intended outcomes/results, and assess and adjust the organization's direction in response to a changing environment. It is a disciplined effort that produces fundamental decisions and actions that shape and guide what an organization is, who it serves, what it does, and why it does it, with a focus on the future. Effective strategic planning articulates not only where an organization is going and the actions needed to make progress, but also how it will know if it is successful.
SDAPCD has planned for broad engagement of residents, businesses, community stakeholders, nonprofits and community-based organizations, elected officials, and SDAPCD management and staff. Our hope is to engage as many people in our community as possible and provide the opportunity for all to be involved in the process and provide input.
SDAPCD Board Members, elected officials, community-based organizations, SDAPCD leadership and staff will be invited to participate in group and individual interviews or respond to surveys to provide their input. Residents will also be able to leave comments and send ideas to SDAPCD via this website. SDAPCD will host a virtual forum on January 31, 2024. At the forum, community members can brainstorm ideas for SDAPCD's future with their fellow residents. Sign up for strategic plan updates here.
The strategic plan is a document that we will use to define the future vision for the SDAPCD. Having a strategic plan allows us to:
Communicate our priorities within a forward-thinking and clear framework so we can make effective budget and policy decisions and secure the resources we need to sustain the organization into the future. Maintain a guiding "north star”, providing stability and more certainty in the face of election cycles, changes in leadership, economic fluctuations, and changes to the state and federal regulatory environments. This gives us greater ability to influence and steer SDAPCD’s future direction and make better decisions during turbulent times.
