Message from Council: On behalf of the Council and staff of the Municipality of Calvin, we are pleased to present the 2022-2026 Strategic Plan. The Plan articulates goals and objectives forthe next five (5) years. It is a communication tool to inform residents of the direction the Municipality would like to take and how it will be achieved. This document represents our compass to the future. It builds on some of the elements residents were looking for when they elected their new Council including openness and transparency. It continues to focus on building a vibrant, safe and healthy community for the next leg of the Municipality’s journey. The strategic planning process began in late 2019, taking 25 months to formulate. Council has put a lot of thought, time and effort in putting the plan together, attempting to include all the ideas put forth with a direction that would support the Vision and Mission Statement of our community. The Strategic Plan does not capture everything the Municipality does each day for our citizens. Rather it captures the significant measures necessary to move on priority goals. It also takes into account several important stakeholder perspectives and considerations from constituents identified through the 2018 election campaign, our strategic plan community survey, staff, direction from previous Council and directions received through the Legislative Agenda. This will be our first Strategic Plan and it will be reviewed every five (5) years from this point on for completion of goals and readjustment if necessary. The Strategic Plan will guide the Municipality’s budget over the next five (5) years. It is through the budget process that Council’s Strategic Plan will be implemented with details on actions, timing, required resources and accountability. On an annualbasis, Council will report to citizens of Calvin on its implementation progress and how the work is impacting our community. In closing, we wish to thank everyone who provided input as we prepared our Strategic Plan. Your voice isvalued!
