A plan to guide decision-making for residents of Burlington, Milton, Oakville and Halton Hills was adopted by Halton Region councillors last week.

On July 12, Council approved the Region’s 2023-2026 Strategic Business Plan that identifies the priorities for their four-year term of office.

The Plan includes four strategic themes, each with goals, actions and measures that will guide the work to enhance the programs, services and infrastructure residents rely on every day.

“This Plan reflects the priorities of residents and businesses, and builds on our successes and ongoing work with community partners to enhance the quality of life in Halton,” said Halton Regional Chair Gary Carr.

“I would like to thank everyone who provided their feedback and shared what matters most to them to help inform the 2023-2026 Strategic Business Plan. Together, we help to keep Halton a great place to live.”

To support the development of the Plan, residents, businesses and community partners as well as Indigenous People, Communities and First Nations were engaged in a public consultation process.

Public engagement activities included an online survey, virtual public meetings and a community partner meeting. Input received helped to inform the Plan and ensure it reflects what matters most to the community.

The four strategic themes outlined in the 2023-2026 Strategic Business Plan include:

  • Community Well Being
  • Infrastructure and Growth
  • Climate Change and the Environment
  • Excellence in Government

“Regional Council will continue to work closely with the Local Municipalities, other levels of government and community partners to implement the new Plan, deliver on the strategic themes and find collaborative solutions to emerging issues,” said a spokesperson for the Region.

“Progress on the themes, goals, actions and measures will be reviewed and reported to Regional Council on an annual basis.”
