Introduction: 2015-2017 Strategic Plan

On May 26, 2015, the 2013-2017 Council of the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo approved its Strategic Plan. The Strategic Plan, summarized in these pages, addresses the steps the Municipality will take over the next three years, from 2015 – 2017, to address the vision and the goals of our longer-term Municipal Development Plan (MDP). Each goal and strategy within our three-year Strategic Plan aligns with one or more of the strategies from the MDP. Council’s Strategic Plan sets the direction for the next three years and clarifies the important goals and accomplishments that are needed to continue to build the Region.

The Strategic Plan focuses on Building a Strong and Resilient Community. It was built on the feedback received from community residents and leaders and reflects the wishes and needs of the community. As a result, the 2013-2017 Council will put building blocks in place for the following goals:

  1. A more responsible government
  2. Balanced services for all residents in the region
  3. A continued robust economy
  4. An effective land strategy
  5. A reliable transportation network
  6. A sustainable community
  7. A healthy and active lifestyle

Departmental Business Plans, to be published by December 2015, will be based on Council’s Strategic Plan and will provide transparency to residents and stakeholders about how the Municipality will achieve these goals.
