Long-range or Strategic Plan

Wayne Clark, the Unitarian Universalist Association’s former Director of Congregational Fundraising Services, encourages every congregation to have a long-range plan, or as he prefers to call it, a strategic plan. “Long-range planning implies that you start with what you have and build from there,” he said. “Strategic planning is more of a clean slate approach and is less confining.”

Building (First a Master Site Plan)

A strong master plan provides a road map for future growth for a site or complex. The goal of a good Master Plan is to find reasonable current development while keeping in mind the need for future development.
