Strategic planning provides the direction for a sustainable future that caters to our diverse community.
Strategic planning involves understanding local issues and providing strategies that will guide how land is used and developed in order to enjoy a quality lifestyle and the opportunity to live, work, play and do business locally.
To achieve this goal, Strategic Planning reviews the economic, environmental and social trends and identifies opportunities to meet the values, aspirations and needs of our City. In consultation with the community, Strategic Planning prepare, review and implement planning legislation, policies and strategic projects to help build a healthy and sustainable City.
