Kawartha Lakes has set ambitious goals for the next four years, to help fulfill its vision of creating thriving and growing communities within a healthy and natural environment. The 2020-2023 Strategic Plan is now available online and will serve as a roadmap for the municipality to follow.
“While our priorities were redirected early this year to essential services due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we remain committed to the long-term vision in this Strategic Plan,” said Ron Taylor, Chief Administrative Officer, City of Kawartha Lakes. “We've laid a strong foundation in the last four years and now we’ve got the framework for some exciting years ahead of us. Thank you to everyone that participated in developing the Plan, we value your feedback and we’ve used what we’ve learned to make it better.”
Developing the Plan was an inclusive process, the municipality collaborated with members of the public, partners, staff and Council in a variety of formats. As a result, it reflects the values, vision and priorities of our community. Those priorities include:
Focusing on these key priorities, the next steps for the municipality are to develop action plans for its goals and to monitor and report on its achievements. As always, Council will look to accomplish these priorities while balancing affordability and service excellence.
Progress reports and updates will be provided periodically to keep the public informed on the City’s progress. To learn more about the process and work that went into creating the 2020-2023 Strategic Plan, visit Jump In, Kawartha Lakes.
