Draft Strategic Plan
Since April 2009, Town Council has met for several strategic planning sessions and has created a draft vision statement, mission statement, core principles and a series of goals and objectives. Council is now looking for your input into their draft strategic plan.
Attached below is a copy of Council’s draft strategic plan. Please take the time to review its contents and provide Council with your suggestions.
In addition, a public meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 21, 2009 at 7:00 pm at the Wolfville Fire Hall. The meeting will include a presentation of the draft strategic plan followed by input from residents in attendance.
July 20th ? Come on! It’s summer. People are on vacation. And why is it that concerns and questions go to the CAO. Have we any confidence they will get to Council?
A copy of the strategic plan is on the ToW website in PDF format.
Later: We are struggling through the verbiage. We like this part:
Provide a better communication link to the public – build the bridge so that we are responding to their issues. We need a better way to communicate and respond;
…Improved communication with the people – improved budgeting process –
If only they meant it.
..work creatively with the community to achieve our vision.”
Shouldn’t that be OUR vision not their vision?
