The District of Sooke Council has approved their 2015 Strategic Plan at the meeting held on April 13, 2015.

The role of the Strategic Plan is to guide all municipal processes within the District of Sooke over the next 4 years based on five fundamental principles:  fiscal sustainability, excellence in management and governance, streamlining community planning, promoting economic prosperity and enhancing community livability. The Plan is the result of a Council and staff workshop with Paragon Strategic Services Ltd. Held on February 13, 2015 and a series of meetings to develop objectives for the work plan.

“The intent of the Strategic Plan is to identify and focus on objectives where we as an organization believe changes and improvements can be made to enhance the livability of our community for all citizens,” says Mayor Maja Tait. “As our community continues to see growth, we are faced with unique and important opportunities and challenges that need to be proactively addressed in order for us to achieve our goals.”

Some key objectives addressed within the Strategic Plan include: proactively plan for replacement of our infrastructure, ensure we are properly structured and resourced to meet the community’s needs, ensure the Official Community Plan is current; pursue economic opportunities, and focus on making the Town Centre vibrant and accessible.

“Working within these framework, specific objectives have been identified which will guide the District’s annual budgets and work plans over the term,” says Mayor Tait.
