Blueprint Chesterfield: Building a Better Community
At the TLG Conference that was held this month in St. Paul, Minnesota, Chesterfield County, Virginia, staff from did a follow-up presentation to the study they presented last year. Presenter Natalie Spillman, budget and management analyst for the county, said, “Blueprint Chesterfield is the framework that organizes longstanding county practices related to budget and strategic planning into a more coordinated and understandable system. To that end, Blueprint also serves as a communications tool to facilitate more meaningful dialogue concerning the County’s strategic mission, both internally and with the community. Blueprint Chesterfield allows us to easily define why we do what we do.” Read more about the case study in this month’s Transformations here.
