Vision Statement

The City of West Allis will provide a living and working environment throughout the community that is focused on providing its citizens and businesses a coordinated, efficient, effective, and responsive level of services. The City of West Allis will make this community the preferred municipality in the Milwaukee metropolitan area, the state, and the country.

Mission Statement

The City of West Allis is a municipal organization operating under the constitution and statutes of the State of Wisconsin, and the ordinances, policies, and procedures of the City in order to:

  • Provide cost effective municipal services consistent with the needs and desires of the citizens of the West Allis community (residences and businesses, as well as other community stakeholders);
  • Provide for the health, safety, and welfare of the community;
  • Provide a quality living and working environment, and
  • Provide a positive, progressive, and creative approach to the budget, management and operations of the City.

Creation of Strategic Plan

In 2015, the City of West Allis began a multi-stage process to identify the strengths, opportunities, long-term aspirations, and measurable results that would position West Allis for a prosperous and positive future.

A steering committee made up of City officials, City employees, community stakeholders, and residents worked with members of the Milwaukee County UW-Extension Program to undertake the process of creating a Five Year Strategic Plan that would:

  • Establish a road map for the City’s future and measure the progress made.
  • Be used on a daily basis to ensure resources are being allocated to the appropriate programs and services.
  • Be used on an annual basis to establish City budgeting priorities and develop and implement programs to effectuate progress toward future goals.
  • Provide greater accountability.
  • Create shared visions and innovations City wide.

2017 – 2021 Strategic Plan

The City of West Allis Five Year Strategic Plan consists of Five Strategic Goals:

Strategic Plan Steps

Under each goal within the Strategic Plan document are specific strategic actions. These measurable, actionable items are assigned to City officials or City departments to execute within the five year time frame to move the City closer to achieving the five overarching goals.
