We’re renewing our Community Vision and Four Year Strategic Plan for the City of Leduc.
Our journey starts with listening to you – the community. We want to understand your needs, wants, hopes and dreams for our future.
City Council and administration will use your input and ideas to help craft a vision and strategic plan that truly reflects our values, spirit and aspirations. A plan that will continue to guide and support citizens today and for generations to come.
It’s time to get involved. Let’s talk Leduc and build a stronger community, together.
What is a commmunity vision?
“This is where we want to go.”
Our vision will describe what we value about our community and what we want it to look and feel like in the future. It says “this is where we want to go.” It is something we aspire to.
The vision also helps guide Council and administration in goal-setting and in developing policies and actions that align with overarching community values and priorities.
What is a four year strategic plan and what does it mean to me?
“This is how we’ll get there.”
While a vision describes what community members want, a strategic plan describes the steps that can help get there.
City Council starts each term by renewing the city’s strategic plan that will guide activities and decisions for the next four years. It’s Council’s commitment to the community. The plan is based on the city’s best understanding of the environment in which we live and is informed by the needs and desires of citizens.
The 2019 – 2022 strategic plan will identify key areas to address over the next four years with goals and objectives.
INTERNAL DEEP DIVE: Analyze learnings and feedback from past initiatives including past strategic planning and visioning days.
NOVEMBER – DECEMBER 2017
CONSULT: Introduce the project and engage citizens on community vision, values and priorities. We’ll then report back on the input received.
INFORM: Provide the community with updates on the progress made by Leduc City Council and administration while they help to build upon the plan.
CONSULT: Provide the community with an opportunity to provide input on the vision and strategic plan and report back to City Council.
INFORM: Share the final plan with citizens and stakeholders.
The vision and strategic plan must reflect the needs of the entire community, and there is no single engagement tactic that can effectively reach everyone. In order to gather the best input possible, we’re seeking feedback across multiple streams using a diverse set of tools and techniques.ONLINE SURVEY | Thank you for your input!
Thank you to everyone who participated in the online survey for the Community Vision and Strategic Plan. We have collected all of your responses and are hard at work incorporating them into the draft Community Vision and Strategic Plan. We’ll report back soon with a “What We Heard” report, so we can share what everyone thought!
