To plan for the future needs of Springwater and develop a long-term vision for the municipality, the Township of Springwater has created and adopted a new Community-Based Strategic Plan with a 20-year outlook.
The development of the plan was led by Ottawa-based consulting firm McSweeney & Associates, who worked collaboratively with a steering committee made up of key representatives of the Township’s senior management team.
An intensive public consultation process was undertaken to ensure that members of the community had an opportunity to share their thoughts on Springwater’s future. The public consultation included one-on-one interviews, a community survey and focus groups.
Five key themes emerged from the public consultation process and form the basis of the following strategic priorities:
- Leveraging growth to improve Springwater as a community;
- Leveraging growth to improve Springwater’s economy;
- Building community unity to support a sense of place;
- Addressing climate change while embracing environmental sustainability; and,
- Corporate actions.
To accomplish the objectives outlined in the strategic priorities, a set of 93 community-based actions were developed. These actions provide realistic and feasible steps for the municipality to take in achieving its goals.
