After a long discussion, council isn't ready to finalize a strategic plan just yet.
At Tuesday's (May 15) committee of the whole meeting, members of Fort Saskatchewan City Council took a look over their draft 2019-2022 Strategic Plan.
Council's mission for the preliminary strategic plan is to work together to create a sustainable and thriving community through exemplary leadership and management by following their core values of leadership, innovation, service excellence and fun.
The city is also preparing their 2040 vision, with a slogan of 'My Fort: Engaged People, Thriving Community'.
"Visioning is about what do we expect from a planning standpoint. What do we expect our community to look like in a defined point in time?" said councillor Gordon Harris.
Council outlined their priories in the draft, including the new waste program, legalization of cannabis framework, implementing recommendations from the 2017 governance review and Vision Zero.
In the 2019-2022 draft strategic plan, top goals include managing growth, operational excellence, creating a welcoming and caring community and effective and efficient municipal infrastructure.
"I think it's evolving and we're getting to the stage where we can have a little bit more discussion and flush out those priorities to a point we're all comfortable with," added Harris.
The discussion at the committee of the whole meeting was taken as information. Administration will be making changes to the plan before bringing it back to another meeting.
