City Adopts Strategic Plan
City of Langley, B.C. – October , 2012 … Langley City Council has adopted the 2013-2017 Strategic Plan at the Regular Council Meeting held on October 1st, 2012.
The role of the Strategic Plan is to guide all planning processes within the City of Langley over the next five years based on three fundamental elements: our vision – “The Place To Be”, our Mission – “To build a vibrant, healthy and safe community”, and our core values – the beliefs or principles that guide City Council and staff. The Strategic Plan is the result of a series of Council and staff workshops as well as input from our advisory committees which include citizens of the community.
Mayor Peter Fassbender stated that “the intent of the Strategic Plan is to identify and focus on the result areas where we as an organization believe changes and improvements can be made to enhance the livability of our community for all citizens. As the City and surrounding communities continue to see growth, we are faced with unique and important opportunities and challenges that need to be proactively addressed in order for us to achieve our Vision and our Mission.”
The key result areas addressed within the Strategic Plan are: improving our infrastructure; enhancing the quality of life in our City; communicating with our residents more effectively; revitalizing our downtown core; protecting, preserving, restoring, sustaining, and enhancing our environment; ensuring our citizens’ safety and security; and investing in organization development. Working within these result areas, 49 specific initiatives have been identified which will guide our annual budgets and work plans over the next five years as we continue to position ourselves as “The Place To Be”.
