On November 4, The City of Calgary will release its next four-year strategic plan & budget for public review. As part of The City’s regular cycle of municipal elections and business planning, Action Plan is how we connect our City’s day-to-day operations with its long-term goals, as well as balance providing great services with affordable tax rates for all Calgarians.
The Action Plan process launched last March with a broad-reaching citizen engagement campaign. Informed by engagement results, as well as other inputs like major economic and demographic trends, City finances and legislative obligations, Calgary City Council drafted and approved its Priorities for 2015 - 2018 in May.
Over the summer, City staff created plans and budgets in response to Council’s Priorities within spending limits identified by Council. The result, Action Plan 2015 - 2018, identifies how The City will deliver 44 of Council’s strategic actions over four years, representing over $20 billion of capital infrastructure investment and service delivery. We will also continue to provide nearly 100 different kinds of front-line services that support citizens in their daily lives.
Visit calgary.ca/actionplan to see the full plan on November 4, as well as City performance measures, benchmarking, citizen engagement, budgets and detailed Council Priorities. After Action Plan is released, Council will consider the plan for approval during two weeks of deliberations from November 24 to December 5, 2014.
Find out more and get involved! From November 4 onward, citizens can comment on the proposed plan on calgary.ca, by filling out a comment card at your local public library, or by contacting 311. As well, citizens are invited to sign-up before November 19 to speak during Council deliberations or submit a presentation in advance for consideration by November 13. All feedback will be shared with Council.
