Imagine Austin laid out a framework for implementing the plan's many policies and actions to move us towards our community vision. One element of that implementation model was the formation of eight priority programs to provide structure and direction to accomplish the plan's many goals and more efficiently coordinate its operations, investments, and the provision of core services. These priority programs span the core principles of the comprehensive plan and enable the City of Austin and its partners to pull together, break down silos, make connections, and leverage resources for more effective implementation. Each of the priority program teams are made up of a cross-departmental and diverse team of staff, and all have their own unique way of tackling their work. Each of these priority programs also have important relationships with the others and make valuable connections across subject areas.
