Approved in May 2014, Council Priorities 2015 – 2018 are set by City Council and focus on Calgarians and the services they want and need to achieve their goals. They include defined outcomes for each of the five priority areas and 44 strategic actions to provide direction for administration.
To develop the priorities, City Council considered trends, citizen engagement results, legislation, long term plans, economic indicators and the needs of day to day operations. Council Priorities help guide City departments as they create their business plans and budgets, called Action Plan 2015 – 2018, within the spending limits set by Council. Working together, City departments will collaborate to realize the outcomes set in Council Priorities.
The draft Action Plan will be released in early November for public review and comment followed by Council deliberations November 24-December 5.
