Action Plan Check-in
For the month of February, the City of Calgary will be checking-in with you to understand your 2017-2018 priorities. You can provide your feedback using our interactive online survey or visit one of several events across the City this month to engage with staff and provide your input. Please visit us in Ward 6 on the engage bus at Glendale's Snow Day 2016 on February 6, 2016 from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. (2405 Glenmount Drive SW).
We want to hear what matters most to you and which priorities The City should focus on in 2017-2018. The results of engagement activities will be shared with Council and will help shape mid-cycle adjustments to Action Plan 2017-2018. The survey, engagement events, and complete details can be found at www.calgary.ca/checkin.
What is Action Plan?
Action Plan 2015-2018 is The City’s four-year business plan and budgets. It was the result of a year-long process where citizens, City Council and City staff established the strategic direction for 2015-2018, connecting day-to-day business with citizen engagement, Council priorities and long-term strategic plans such as the Municipal Development Plan and the Calgary Transportation Plan. To find the right balance between investing in quality public service and keeping tax rates reasonable, City Council and City staff worked together to create this multi-year plan to deliver great outcomes for Calgary.
Action Plan 2015-2018 provides direction to over 15,000 City of Calgary employees and many community partners to deliver important services, programs and infrastructure to an estimated 1.2 million Calgarians by 2018. Over four years, Action Plan represents an investment of approximately $22 Billion in capital projects and citizen services.
What is the purpose of the Action Plan Check-in?
The development of Action Plan 2015-2018 included significant public engagement and the approval of Council Priorities and Strategic Actions to guide the development of the plans and budgets. The purpose of the Action Plan Check-in is to provide opportunities for Council and Calgarians to offer input on the priorities they want The City to focus on in 2017-2018. The process allows for mid-cycle adjustments that fine tune the existing plan and budgets to reflect changing circumstances as warranted.
