What should Strathcona County focus on?
The county’s strategic plan, released in 2013, set out a long-term vision and identified 12 community priorities to be advanced over the next 20 plus years. In developing its first, four-year corporate business plan, the county focused on advancing four of these goals, and introduced the priority-based approach to business planning and budgeting.
As the first planning cycle comes to an end, the county is looking for input to assess whether more work is required on the original goals, or whether it is time to shift the organizations focus to other priorities.
"Previous years have been more about education and awareness," said Kelly Rudyk, director of corporate planning for Strathcona County.
Citizen input will inform conversations with Strathcona County Council, who review the strategic goals each year and contribute to assessing their priority in light of the next four-year planning cycle.
The strategic directions survey will run from November 3 to November 26.
Open houses have also been scheduled. A link to the survey, as well as a schedule for open houses is available at www.strathcona.ca/SCdirection.
