In Chesterfield County, Virginia, strategic planning and budgeting have been dating for a very long time. At times they seemed right on the brink of tying the knot. People wondered, what are they waiting for; they aren’t getting any younger, you know?
Tired of waiting for planning and budgeting to realize they belonged together, Chesterfield County planned a shotgun wedding. We even designed a place for the new couple to live. We call it Blueprint Chesterfield. Blueprint Chesterfield establishes priorities for allocating resources. What makes this marriage unique?
- Sets priorities
- Provides step by step guidance that is easy to use and understand
- Generates clear, concise, meaningful information
- Uses numbers to tell the story
May budgeting and planning live happily ever after!
