Some big things are on the way in Morinville.
 
The Town of Morinville Council has approved their 2018-2020 Strategic Plan, with quality of life being number one on the list.
 
They will look at more opportunities for recreation, culture, social, environmental and business.
 
“Council is excited to have established this Strategic Plan so early in our mandate,” said Mayor Barry Turner. “We will be reviewing and updating priorities quarterly to ensure the plan continuously reflects the goals and desires of the community.”
 
The Strategic Plan identifies six priorities:
- Environmental: ensuring Morinville‘s parks and green spaces are healthy and protected
- Infrastructure: managing all infrastructure in a fiscally sound, secure, safe, and well-maintained manner
- Economic development: economic and community development and the support of business within Morinville
- Social: having Morinville continue to be recognized as a desirable community to live and work in with a high quality of life
- Culture and Recreation: providing quality recreational and fitness opportunities that are accessible, affordable and reflect the needs of the community
- Governance: operate in a financially prudent and well-managed manner with open communication with residents, business partners, community organizations and surrounding municipalities
 
Effective sustainability plans are developed within a comprehensive Strategic Planning Framework that positions the Municipal Sustainability Plan relative to other plans and outlines a clear cycle and process for review and renewal. Based on best practice, Morinville developed an innovative Strategic Planning Framework, which was adopted by Council on May 12, 2015.
 
On January 23, council adopted the plan.
