Colwood's new 2024-2027 Strategic Plan

Colwood Council approved the 2024-2027 Strategic Plan on March 11, 2024.

The Strategic Plan outlines areas where Council wants to be more involved and see meaningful progress over the next four years.

Built upon community input

The goals and tactics align with the directions in the Official Community Plan. They aim to address community needs and expectations and allow citizens to thrive.

The development of the Draft Strategic Plan was informed by public input, including the February 2023 Ideas Fair where the City gathered ideas from residents on a broad range of topics including transportation, health, urban forests, youth, seniors, arts & culture, sewer service and more. More than 400 residents attended. Directions in the plan were reaffirmed through Citizen Survey findings and the Life in Colwood survey of household prosperity. Further, between November 2023, and January 2024, Colwood residents and businesses were encouraged to review and provide input into the Goals, Targets, and Tactics outlined in the draft plan.

How are tactics in the Strategic Plan put into action

Specific tactics outlined in the plan are included in Service Plans which are reviewed by Council each fall in advance of budget deliberations. Council approved projects are included in the five year Financial Plan to be implemented and the City works to keep residents informed and involved throughout the process.
