In keeping with industry trends, the city is proud to announce this year’s report is presented as a single-page website that graphically highlights city accomplishments in an easy to read, succinct format.

“With this report, we really listened to feedback we’ve received with past reports. Some may think an annual report is full of numbers and information that isn’t fun to read, but we put a lot of effort into this report to make it easy to understand and give readers an exciting overview of their community that is simple and engaging. It celebrates all the city has accomplished and tells our story well,” said CoCo Good, Communications and Marketing Director. “As always, our website offers much more detail on everything mentioned in the report for those who would prefer more extensive information.”
The annual progress report can be viewed online on a desktop or smart device, but is best viewed in landscape mode.
