Strategic Alignment Plan

The Strategic Alignment Plan (SAP) is designed to unite Central Houston, Inc. (CHI), Houston Downtown Management District (HDMD), and Downtown Redevelopment Authority (DRA) Boards of Directors in pursuit of a shared vision for Downtown, provide a defined mission for the entities working collectively, and orchestrate staff efforts through five strategic goals which will, over time, shape the entities’ respective budgets and work plans. It is intended to work within the boundaries of, and not replace or conflict, with HDMD’s 2020 District Plan and the DRA’s Project Plan. Additionally, the SAP proposes metrics to assist in monitoring progress plus a refreshed organizational structure capable of delivering on the expectations set forth in this plan. Finally, the experience of crafting the SAP together was intended to instill a shared purpose for the three boards and their scores of board members, optimize the use of organizational resources toward the aligned vision, and foster a stronger sense of unity among the staff at CHI.
