What is a strategic plan?
Council is responsible for determining the strategic direction of the municipality. Their strategic plan is the roadmap for the community. It identifies what our community will be like, what services and programs will be provided and what values the organization will embrace in our efforts to meet our ultimate vision. This document guides all municipal initiatives to ensure the municipality is mission successful.
Mission, Vision, and Key Strategies
The strategic plan contains Council’s vision for the future of our community. The mission statement outlines “how” we are going to get there and is supported by four key strategies. These key strategies include sustainable infrastructure; corporate excellence; strong community; and economic prosperity.
Within each of these key strategies, Council identifies a goal and objectives. With these goals and objectives in mind, staff draft operational and capital budgets for Council to approve each year. Council adopts a budget that outlines initiatives to achieve these goals and objectives. A measurement system throughout the year helps us understand how well we are doing.
Our annual reports outline our achievements as they relate to goals in the strategic plan.
Strategic Plan 2021-2024
Following municipal elections in the fall of 2020, a new Council was elected for a four-year term. With each new Council comes the responsibility to adopt an updated Strategic Plan. Council adopted the 2021-2024 Strategic Plan on July 28, 2021.
