Policy Roadmap

Service Information

President Preckwinkle has published the Policy Roadmap: Five-Year Strategic Plan for Offices Under the President—the first comprehensive policy driven strategic plan for the Offices Under the President (OUP) since the administration’s 2011 transition plan.

We are committed to a process that includes direct input and participation of community, industry and thought partners as well as other stakeholders. This Policy Roadmap incorporates a multitude of public feedback and outlines key policy priorities and strategic initiatives that address public policy challenges facing the residents of the County. It reflects the administration’s core values and vision for fostering safe, thriving and healthy communities.

Download the Policy Roadmap Executive Summary or the full Policy Roadmap: Five-Year Strategic Plan for Offices Under the President. The Executive Summary includes an overview of the Offices Under the President, our mission, vision and values, and the goals and objectives for each of the six policy priorities. The full plan includes background on Cook County, Cook County Government, and greater detail for each policy priority. Both the full Policy Roadmap and the Executive Summary are also available in Spanish. Below are videos explaining why equity is a foundational value of the Roadmap and the goal of each policy priority.
