Town Council recently concluded their annual Strategic Planning Retreat. All members of Council along with senior managers engaged a consultant to review and consider major aspects of the town’s operation and community development. The retreat is the key process to renew and consider the direction of the community and organization moving forward.
Council gave special consideration to the appropriate planning of upcoming capital facilities. New and expanded public facilities require large expenditures and have significant impacts on the quality of life of residents. Recreation and cultural facility planning will continue to be a major part of the Town’s focus.
Mayor William Choy says, “When we picture the future of Stony Plain, we see recreation and culture facilities being in our community for tri-region residents to enjoy and spend time in with their friends and families.”
Planning for the future of Stony Plain requires an understanding of the entire region and its future. Town Council continued its commitment to examining and advancing regional cooperation.
Town Manager Tom Goulden says, “Service level and administrative integration is important to Council, there are many areas where we can work together with our regional partners while maintaining governance authority and ensuring equitable costs structures between the three municipalities.”
The outcomes of the retreat form the basis of Council’s Strategic Plan. This Plan will be presented to Council for consideration on March 27, 2017
