Strategic Plan

Mission Statement

The City of Orange is committed to excellent service for our residents, businesses and visitors.


As an organization, the City of Orange is the leader in delivering the highest level of service to meet current and future needs of the community.


At the City of Orange, we value:
  • Teamwork: Working together to achieve common goals.  
  • Integrity: Committed to the highest standard of moral and ethical conduct.
  • Excellence: Demanding the best from ourselves and others. 

In January 2008, the City Council adopted a comprehensive Strategic Plan.  The Plan defines the purpose of the organization, establishes realistic goals and objectives, presents a vision of success, and will help focus our resources on key strategic priorities.

The preparation of the Strategic Plan included extensive involvement from the City Council, Staff, and members of our community.  It is meant to be a guiding force in the preparation of the City's annual Operating and Capital Improvement Budget. Annual Workplans, which are included in the City's budget, identify how they work towards the Strategic Plan's goals. The Plan was most recently updated in 2018.
