Representatives from the city of Starkville, Oktibbeha County, the Greater Starkville Development Partnership, Starkville School District and Mississippi State University spent Thursday afternoon together in Renasant Bankâ€™s community room to continue discussions as they develop and implement strategic plans.
City and county government, along with the Partnership, have primarily been working together as they develop their own strategic plan for a number of short- and intermediate-term goals. The groups also welcomed SSD, which completed developing its strategic plan last year, and Mississippi State University, which is in the midst of implementing its strategic plan for 2012-17, to take part in the strategic planning retreat.
