Distinct Communities Working Together for Sustainable Growth and Prosperity.
The Town of South Bruce Peninsula is home to a variety of wildlife and unique plant species. The protection and management of the Town`s unique natural heritage and environment is a key driver not only for growth and development, but for how natural heritage could be protected and preserved.
Creating Our Future includes the necessary steps to ensure the protection of the natural resources while balancing the desire for business, tourism and recreational opportunities. There are many specific and unique needs for the communities located within the Town. Creating Our Future addresses the uniqueness of each of the communities and recognizes that although there is the need to be more connected and collaborate on initiatives, it is also important to continue to maintain the uniqueness of each of the communities and their diverging interests. Critical success factors of this planning assignment included ensuring the involvement of a representative cross section of citizens from across the Town.
Creating Our Future - The Town of South Bruce Peninsula's Community-Based Strategic Plan was developed through an open and transparent public process. Further, there was the need to ensure Town staff and council were engaged throughout the process to validate what actions were feasible within current/anticipated funding frameworks. The outcomes of the Plan include the establishment of a collective vision and actions for the next 10 years that defines ways to maximize resources and communicate priorities to all citizens. The plan includes an implementation strategy that extends to the operations and will be aligned with the goals of respective departments that deliver municipal services across the Town of South Bruce Peninsula.
