The Strategic Plan & Execution Guide has been recently updated. To view the progress the City staff have made in executing the strategic plan, see the live dashboard below. The dashboard will take a few moments to load -- please be patient.




The City of Hutto is a full-service, home-rule municipality operating under a Council-Manager form of government in central Texas. While the population at the 2000 census was just 1,250, nearly 25,000 people now call the growing community home, making Hutto one of the fastest growing cities in the nation. People choose Hutto for the active neighborhoods, a strong sense of community, for the dedicated teachers and administrators at the high-performing Hutto ISD, and for the ability to have all a small town life has to offer while still being just 25 minutes from the heart of the Texas State Capitol.

Hutto has been recently recognized as the “Top Place in Texas to Raise a Family”, the “#1 Local City (in the Austin area) For Young Couples, “One of the Top 100 Places in Major Markets to Locate a Business” and is consistently ranked as one of the fastest growing and safest cities in the country. From its rural, agricultural roots to the growing population and commercial center that is now Hutto, the community has remained centered on its people and the neighborhoods they call home.

Like Hutto, this Strategic Plan & Execution Guide is partly old and partly new. At the direction of the City Council, we started with the documents and work that the community had already done around planning for its future. The 2040 Comprehensive Plan, the 2035 Strategic Guide, and the FY2017 Annual Budget included 198 different statements, principles, and goals and each has been incorporated here in some form. One of the guiding principles in the development of this Strategic Plan & Execution Guide was to honor and utilize the significant work that has already been done.

At the same time, these three base documents were not integrated or aligned well and generally did not organize or prioritize the 198 statements in a way that helped the City of Hutto staff to execute on the statements. The overarching goal of this Strategic Plan & Execution Guide is to use a framework to engage the City Council, the community, and the staff in identifying and prioritizing specific strategic focus areas, clear organizational objectives, and actionable tactical-level goals that are consistently aligned with the overall vision of the community.

The Strategic Plan and Execution Guide was updated and approved by City Council in 2019 to continue to prioritize and focus goals around the five strategic focus areas and 10 objectives of the City.
