The draft strategic plan is here!

On Monday, May 27, City of Waterloo Council received a draft strategic plan. The draft plan is based on the feedback of nearly 11,000 members of our community. It proposes six strategic goals and accompanying objectives that provide a common focus for council and staff to guide decision-making over the next four years.

The six strategic goals are:

  1. Equity, inclusion and a sense of belonging
  2. Sustainability and the environment
  3. Safe, sustainable transportation
  4. Healthy community and resilient neighbourhoods
  5. Infrastructure renewal
  6. Economic growth and development

The entire draft strategic plan report is posted in the document library.

The draft strategic plan will now undergo minor refinements based on council’s feedback, and council will approve the final document on June 24. We will share the final strategic plan with the community on June 25.

Thank you!

We thank everyone who submitted ideas for action items that could be included in the city's departmental business plans. The business plans help us achieve the goals and objectives of the strategic plan. These will be finalized in September and we'll circle back to the community at that time.
