A Message from Langford Council
As we work together to meet the commitments and achieve the objectives detailed in this Strategic Plan, we commit to governing responsibly, respectfully, and strategically, with a focus on transparency, fiscal responsibility, and the careful management of assets. We will do this in collaboration with key partners, whether local, regional, or national, and by expanding public engagement opportunities.
While the Strategic Plan sets out bold and meaningful steps to address current and future issues, we—and future councils—will need to carefully prioritize and maximize the use of available resources to ensure beneficial and long-lasting outcomes. Our vision is to ensure that Langford remains sustainable, healthy, vibrant, inclusive, and innovative for generations to come. We look forward to working with you to make this Strategic Plan a reality.
A pathway forward
This is the City of Langford’s first Strategic Plan. It sets out the shared strategic vision of Council for the next four years, and in some cases beyond. The plan reflects Council’s six strategic priorities, and individual objectives in each of those areas. For each objective, the plan sets out an estimated timeline and whether or not the planned work is currently funded or will be funded in future budgets.
This plan will be reviewed by Council annually, and new priorities will be considered as appropriate to reflect the community’s changing needs.
