Guelph’s Community Plan presents a vision for
the next 10 years and more—a vision shaped and co-created by the community.
This will be particularly valuable
information as the City transitions to creating a new Strategic Plan and starts
multi-year budgeting. However, this Plan isn’t just for the City.
Spelling out the future we want to achieve
will help guide our collective efforts as local organizations, agencies,
government and community members. It will help us to understand who’s working
on what, highlight areas that need more attention, align different efforts and
make priorities clearer.
To keep momentum, the City will continue to work together with the residents, organizations and businesses that helped build the Plan
The research showed that the community is already working hard to achieve the majority of the Plan goals. Where further effort would be valuable is to support dialogue or innovative problem-solving in areas where there are significant challenges or when new opportunities come up.
Learning and celebrating significant acts of community building and innovative problem solving
Working together and learning from each other is incredibly important. Sharing stories and examples of excellence can enable and inspire others.
