Council Visionary Goals

Each year, at Dublin City Council’s retreat, members discuss their goals for the City, determining which ones have been met and which ones we want to continue to pursue. On May 9, 2022, Council adopted four 2022-2023 goals, as outlined below. 

Become the Most Connected Community in the U.S.

Phase II: Broadband to the Home Project

Build a Dublin 2035 Visionary Framework

Publish 2035 Framework, Begin Initial Implementation

Strengthen the Stewardship and Vitality of our Historic District Core

Explore a possible preservation area and dedicate day-to-day management. Establish definitive goals on “what” the Dublin community aim to preserve – environment, structures, era and architecture. Consider a potential “preservation District/Area” within the Historic District. Explore dedicated management and support options and structure that would allow “someone” to wake up every day with the focused mission and tools of delivering on the goals of the district.

Develop Dublin’s “Destination of Choice” Next-Generation Community Events Vision

Develop a community events programming and management roadmap that encompasses both sides of the Dublin Link as a “center of gravity” while leveraging Dublin parks and facilities to create a connected, and comprehensive vision driving vitality, engagement, and entertainment – motivating residents to “never have to leave” and enticing non-residents to make Dublin their “destination of choice.”

City of Dublin Strategic Framework

Dublin has a long been known for thinking ahead. The City has developed numerous strategic plans through the years to serve resident and employer needs through all aspects of municipal government. This thoughtful planning has led to the vibrant, historic district and the exciting new Bridge Street District, which are woven together by the internationally-recognized Dublin Link pedestrian bridge spanning the Scioto. These are just two of several versatile districts that unite a proud history with an exuberant and innovative future.

In 2020, Dublin City Council established a goal to develop a Dublin 2035 Visionary Framework. After an extensive planning and public engagement effort, Dublin City Council adopted a new Strategic Framework on July 25, 2022. The values we hold most dear and the guiding principles we adhere to make it possible for Dublin to be bold in its vision. As described in the following pages, Dublin aspires to be the most sustainable, connected and resilient global city of choice.

The Framework outlines goals related to the City’s economic, fiscal and environmental stewardship; world-class services and amenities; and physical, mental, social and emotional well-being. It also includes goals related to our state-of-the-art infrastructure, including expansive broadband capability that ensures a minimum of 10-gigabit access to all residents, businesses and visitors.

With this Strategic Framework in place and an elite, professional team of elected officials and City employees at work, Dublin is in an outstanding position to continue thriving as a model democracy and exceptional community with the best quality of life.

Public Records Request Overview

In order to support faster response and better tracking of requests, the City of Dublin uses JustFOIA to collect, respond to and manage public information requests.

Why JustFOIA?

JustFOIA is a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) online application that helps streamline the open records request process for the community and improve efficiencies in getting requested information quickly and accurately.

The application lets community members submit requests for all city records, including police reports. Commonly requested information includes accident reports, copies of resolutions and body-camera video.
