Council Chamber, Tom Davies Square, 200 Brady St.
Large-scale initiatives conceived and developed by the members of this community are critical to the future of our city. Greater Sudbury Mayor Brian Bigger and City Council are inviting public and private organizations with large projects, planning to seek municipal funding in 2016 or 2017, to pitch their plans.
Help shape the strategic direction of Council
City Council is calling on key stakeholders to help Council set priorities and shape our city by sharing information on key projects with significant impact on the community in the near future. Council has established four pillars to shape its strategic direction and decision-making over the next three years. Bold, innovative projects, in all sectors, have a significant impact on each of these pillars.
The four pillars of City Council are:
• Growth and economic development
• Responsive, fiscally prudent open governance
• Quality of life and place
• Sustainable infrastructure
In order to be eligible for presentation at this special meeting of Council, projects must meet one or more of the following criteria:
• The project must have a significant and lasting economic impact through job creation, investment or tourism.
• Application for municipal funding for the project will happen in 2016 or 2017, through the budget process.
• The project must align with the strategic pillars of Council.
• The project must enhance civic engagement and build social capital, such as enhancing community pride, health and well-being, diversity and safe communities.
Both public and private projects are encouraged to make presentations.
