Strategic planning helps the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) plan for the future and meet its mission. Every three years, MMSD reviews and defines its mission, vision, and values and sets the strategic goals for the next three years. MMSD staff then identify action items to achieve those goals and develop a framework for measuring progress. The final Strategic Plan is intended to be flexible. While the mission, vision, values, and goals should remain constant, the objectives and action items will need periodic review and adjustment. The Strategic Plan helps staff make decisions on allocating resources to achieve the identified goals, strategies, and objectives.
Throughout 2021, MMSD leadership worked closely with staff to develop the 2022-2024 Strategic Plan. The Plan uses the framework of MMSD’s 2035 Vision to focus our efforts for the next three years.
