Valdosta - The Valdosta City Council has set 19 goals for the city's future.

Topping the list is creating a plan to improve the drop out rate in area schools and completing a transportation plan for the city and county.

The goals were established at the annual City Council Retreat held at Lake Blackshear.  "It's sort of a quick look at the past, present, future and I think the value of it is it helps you keep on track and plan a proactive way rather than a reactive way," says Valdosta City Manager Larry Hanson.

The City Council hopes to address most of the 19 goals this year.
