Akron on Monday unveiled what it calls a strategic plan aimed at helping the city grow and thrive in upcoming years. The Five-Year Strategic Framework will help the city better focus its resources and relationships, advance equitable outcomes, and deliver improved services for all Akron residents, the city said in a news release.

The plan is part of the new Office of Integrated Development, or OID, headed by Deputy Mayor James Hardy. The five-year plan will address issues reported in the Elevate Greater Akron initiative and other economic and community development programs, the city said. The plan does not call for tax increases. The plan’s progress will be tracked using economic and social indicators; the indicators will be reported annually.
