Following the 2020 Municipal Election, Council adopted a Strategic Priorities Framework for their term. This framework outlines the overall direction for the Municipality and prioritizes resources to address significant opportunities, challenges, and regulatory changes that will have an impact on our communities.
After a series of planning workshops and discussions, five priority areas were identified:
- Economic Development
- Environmental Stewardship
- Governance & Engagement
- Healthy & Vibrant Communities
- Infrastructure & Service Delivery
The Strategic Priorities Framework will help guide Council's decision-making, budgeting, and resource allocation, as well as provide direction to Municipal Staff and clear communication to the Municipality's residents, businesses, and organizations. Details about specific projects and initiatives associated with the Framework are outlined in a separate document, the Municipality of Chester 2021-24 Strategic Priorities Chart.
