Strategic Plan Advisory Committee (SPAC)




The purpose of the Strategic Plan Advisory Committee (SPAC) is to provide recommendations and advice to the Post Falls City Council related to the formulation of a Strategic Plan that will guide the short and long-term future of the community.  The SPAC will consist of citizens, business leaders, and other stakeholders who possess experience, knowledge, and business acumen with the establishment of plans and visions for complex organizations.

The responsibilities of the Strategic Plan Advisory Committee are as follows:

  • Regularly attend SPAC meetings and contribute constructively out of the experience and knowledge that they possess.
  • Assist in the creation of guiding principles and direction for the overall planning effort.
  • Understand and articulate the SPAC’s purpose, responsibilities and work plan.
  • Communicate and coordinate with the member’s constituent group to represent the group’s perspective on key issues and convey information from the SPAC back to the stakeholders.
  • Act as an ambassador for the strategic plan with peers, neighbors and colleagues to further enrich the participation and feedback on the process and resulting plan.
  • Review and provide comments/recommendations on project materials and draft plans.
  • Participate actively in the project’s community outreach efforts.
