A Strategic Action Plan is a critical document for municipal governments as it outlines an overall vision for the community. Each community is faced with many divergent needs, such as mandates and expectations from upper levels of government, the need to foster development and business needs to maintain a strong local economy, the need to provide required services at a reasonable and affordable cost to ratepayers, and of course, the desires of the community as a whole. 

In 2023, the Township undertook a Strategic Action Plan development exercise to help guide the direction of the community and Council decisions over a four-year period. We gathered input from residents and business owners through community engagement exercises, considered the known needs of the community based on requirements from the upper-levels of government, the current position of the Township, and the expected growth of our communities. 

Following interviews, surveys and data collection, Council set four goals, each with actionable items for the employee team to work towards achieving during the 2023-2027 period. The following goals define an overall vision for the community:
  • Safe and Reliable Infrastructure
  • Welcoming and Vibrant Community
  • Diverse and Prosperous Economy
  • Exceptional and Accountable Government
We invite you to review the goals and action items below.
