Town of Amherst NH

Strategic Planning / Budget Process

Creating a Desired Future:

An Integrated Approach to Strategic Thinking and Planning

Updating departmental strategic plans launched in 2013 has been a top priority for all departments within the Amherst Town Government. In FY14, department heads collaborated with their personnel to develop a range of multi-year plans and budgets – showing alternative tradeoffs in outcomes and expenditures required to deliver them. This, as will be the case every year, department heads are refreshing those plans based on changes in legislation, technology, best practices, demand for services, etc. that have occurred over the past year. These revised presentations are being shared publicly at Board of Selectmen meetings in September 2014.

The presentations, schedules, and additional information can be found on this page and will be updated as changes occur and more information becomes available. Please click on plan links as they become available.

Please see agenda postings for meeting start times and locations.
