Strategic planning determines exactly where an organization is going and how it's going to get there. Ultimately, strategic planning identifies Council's Vision, Mission, Values, Strategic Areas of Focus and the specific strategies that define how Council and Administration will respond to the needs and goals of the Municipality.
Why Is It Important?
Strategic planning will result in a plan that will set the Municipality’s direction for the future. It’s a roadmap on what the future could look like in terms of services, projects and sustainability and will provide a means to measure the progress of the Municipality in achieving these goals.
How Does this work?
The Municipality has hired a consulting firm to help acquire information needed to create the plan. Residents and business/community stakeholders have an opportunity through surveys and consultation sessions to provide feedback and direction on where you’d like to see West Hants in the future.
