Strategic Management Plan

Cheltenham Township hired Public Financial Management (PFM) to develop a five-year financial plan for the Township. The planning process began in September 2019 and is anticipated to be complete by the end of March 2020. This planning process is broken down into three parts:

1) Financial Condition Assessment: PFM will outline the Township's financial position and the critical underlying factors driving its performance. It provides a forecast of the Township's financial performance over the next five years to help identify and quantity specific financial challenges for the Township.

The  Financial Condition Assessment was presented at the November 13, 2019 Finance Committee meeting.

2) Management Review: PFM will meet with department managers and other staff to discuss what their departments do, how they do it, why they do it and any challenges they face as they deliver the critical services to the people and entities who live, work and visit the Township.

3) Initiative Development and Plan Delivery: Guided by the quantitative analysis in the Financial Condition Assessment and the qualitative analysis in the Management Review, PFM will develop a series of recommendations or initiatives that connect back to the mission statement.

An Update was presented to the Finance Committee on February 12, 2020.

The Final Report is scheduled to be presented at the April 15, 2020 Finance Committee meeting, with an update at the March 11, 2020, Finance Committee meeting. Both meetings are scheduled to begin at 8:00 p.m. and are held at Curtis Hall, 1250 West Church Road, Wyncote, PA 19095.

This project is being funded in part by a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development's Strategic Management Planning Program.
