Council Strategic Plan

In addition to regular tasks related to the general administration of the District (e.g. council meetings and minutes, public inquiries, budgeting, bylaw enforcement and general operations) municipal staff focus their efforts to making progress on various matters which council has determined to be corporate priorities. New matters that arise and come before council from time to time may be considered for action if there are sufficient resources available or if the matters are of great importance and urgency to warrant displacement of one or more items already on the priority list.

2023-2026 Strategic Plan

In our 2023-2026 Strategic Plan, Council has identified five strategic areas of focus, and several priorities and objectives that we intend to accomplish with the support of our employee team. The Strategic Plan will guide us in our governance and decision making, and we firmly believe that the plan will guide our community into a new era of sustainability, inclusivity, and prosperity.
