Orangeville Forward - The Town of Orangeville's Strategic Plan

Orangeville Forward, the Town of Orangeville’s Strategic Plan, defines a common vision for the municipality, identifying priority areas and providing Council and staff with a framework for decision-making. The plan, approved by Council in 2017, sets direction for the completion of departmental plans and budgets. While the Strategic Plan identifies specific objectives, it is also meant to be a fluid document that can be reviewed, adapted and refined as opportunities change.

Led by a strategic planning committee, the process to develop the plan included staff, Council and stakeholder workshops and meetings, and a community survey. The plan outlines updated vision and value statements and sets out priority areas for the next several years. The document is designed to complement and work with other corporate plans such as the annual budget and departmental plans. Some recommended actions will require comprehensive planning, budgetary considerations and approval by Council, while others will be implemented as part of regular operating procedures.

The strategic plan puts forward a community-wide vision: “Orangeville is an inclusive community that respects its heritage, natural environment and small town appeal while embracing the future with a progressive and innovative spirit”.
