Burlington’s Strategic Plan 2015-2040

Council approved the 2015-2040 Strategic Plan. This strategic plan is fundamentally different than past plans in the content, time horizon covered and how the plan was created. It takes on the challenging issues of today and tomorrow, seizes current and future opportunities, and helps Burlington prepare for the next 25 years. The plan is also a framework for critical decision making and considers how the city manages resources. As a result of extensive community engagement, more than 180 changes were made to the draft that went to the community in December 2015/January 2016, including changes as a result of delegations at the March 21 Community and Corporate Services Committee meeting. Read the plan here: www.burlington.ca/strategicplan.
