In 2011, more than 350 Broward County business, civic, academic and government leaders, volunteers and community residents began the process of developing a strategic visioning plan through the year 2030, using the Six Pillars framework of the Florida Chamber Foundation as a strategic planning tool. The plan was developed over the next year and launched in October 2012.
Six Pillars is meant to help communities prosper and create high paying jobs by developing and implementing a visioning process through 2030. The Six Pillars framework is the product of collaboration and research by the Florida Chamber Foundation, working with many other partners. It identifies the critical factors determining Florida’s future and that of its communities. They are as follows:
Talent Supply & Education
Innovation & Economic Development
Infrastructure & Growth Leadership
Business Climate & Competitiveness
Civic & Governance Systems
Quality of Life & Quality Places
The Six Pillars Broward community plan is made up of 22 goals, 82 strategies and nearly 400 tactics. To download the latest version of the Broward Six Pillars plan with the current status of tactics and successes, please click here.
