In order to connect our desired outcomes to our day-to-day work, we identified five council priority areas, or Strategic Goals, that are expected to have short-term impact on community safety, quality of life, and prosperity.

The Airport

In 2014, Santa Monica voters overwhelmingly supported Measure Local Control (Measure LC) to prohibit new development on Airport land, except for parks, public open spaces and public recreational facilities without voter approval and to affirm the City Council's authority to manage Airport land. In 2017, the City Council reached a historic agreement with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) that allows the closure of SMO after December 31, 2028.

Desired outcomes: Place & Planet, Health, Community
