Strategic Plan Update
In September 2015, Council directed staff to initiate an update of the existing Strategic Plan.
The update is focused on revising the Strategic Plan’s actions and measurements. In late 2015, the project was temporary delayed due to a re-allocation of staff resources. In the spring of 2016, the project was re-initiated and staff completed consultation with Council, senior staff and initiated key stakeholders to engage in the consultation process.
The consultation was focused on several questions to identify significant issues and challenges facing the Town over the next five to 10 years and actions to address these challenges. Staff are recommending that an updated Strategic Plan be drafted from the feedback received. The draft Plan will form the basis for the remaining planned public consultation activities in late 2016.
Please view Report No. PBS16-085 Town of Aurora Strategic Plan Update – What We Heard, to learn more about the summary of issues derived from the consultation.
