Cranbrook’s draft 2024-2027 Strategic Plan has been adopted by city council, which will guide the city’s decision-making for the next four years.
City officials said work on the updated plan happened through the first three months of this year, after the fall’s municipal election.
“The new strategic plan will guide the coming three years of this Council and the first year of the next Council’s term,” said city officials. “The reason is that the budget takes months to create, based on projects and a business plan that must follow strategic direction, and the budget is presented to Council in the fall.”
The new plan will help guide all of the budgetary decisions made by city council and staff, starting with the 2024 budget.
“This strategic planning exercise allowed Council and senior leadership to discuss priorities for this Council’s term and beyond, with the resulting final plan reflecting what we as a Council has heard from the community,” says Mayor Wayne Price. “We know there will be instances where this plan may need to change due to unforeseen events like COVID-19, which did with the previous Council. We are committed to adapting our priorities if needed.”
