Council Adopts 2015-2018 Strategic Plan

The City of Greater Sudbury Council has approved a new Strategic Plan that is designed to create a bold, fiscally responsible, innovative, and responsive municipal government. The 2015-2018 Strategic Plan was adopted tonight at the regular meeting of Council. Titled “Greater Together,” the plan outlines four key pillars that form the foundation for the next several years: Growth and Economic Development; Responsive, Fiscally Prudent, Open Governance; Quality of Life and Place; and Sustainable Infrastructure. 

“Formally adopting this plan is an exciting step for our Council and community,” said Mayor Brian Bigger. “I want to thank Council for their insight, enthusiasm, and acumen in developing this plan. I am excited for staff to bring back an implementation plan that incorporates our stated goals, as well as the many projects that the City undertakes every day to serve our community in support of Council’s priorities.”

Council held two full-day strategic planning sessions to develop its shared priorities. Incorporated in the plan are performance metrics to measure success against a revitalized vision, mission and values. The performance metrics include: stronger economic growth, an increase in employee engagement, an increase in citizen satisfaction, an even happier city, and better roads. 

An implementation plan will be developed by staff and presented to Council later this year. Staff will report back to Council at regular intervals on progress made.
