Clive Plan 2017 - 2022 - 2032

In 2012 the Clive Mayor and City Council, along with the City's Management Team, went through an extensive strategic planning process to determine the vision, mission statement, core beliefs and action items for the City of Clive to focus on for the next 15 years.  The process included citizen input through a Citizen Summit held in June 2012 and survey results from the 2016 Citizen Satisfaction Survey held in January 2014.
