City Strategic Plan

In April 2007, the City of Evergreen was chosen to participate in Alabama's Communities of Excellence program.  Since that time, a city strategic plan was developed to help foster growth and prepare the city for the future.  Many aspects of the plan have already been implemented and other parts of the plan are currently underway. We are currently revising the City's Strategic Plan for 2014, however you can download the 2009 City Strategic Plan (PDF) for reference information.
